All of our traditional country hams are made using the same techniques our founder, E.M. Burger, did over 90 years ago.
Our country hams are made from fresh hams that are hand-rubbed with a dry cure mixture made of salt, sugar and black pepper, before paper wrapping and aging them for over 90 days. It's a bold flavor that can only be created with time. After aging, we slowly cook these (bone-in) hams to perfection, remove the ends and vacuum package only the boneless center portion, to lock in the bold country ham flavor.
Enjoy the best portion of our flagship ham - fully cooked and ready to eat. Available sliced or unsliced.
Country Ham is slowly cooked using our own 24-hour method.
They are convenient for you. No mess, no hot oven, no worry about over baking or underbaking.
Hams are fully trimmed. (Excess skin and fat have been removed.)
They are great in the refrigerator for cutting off a nibble, or for a quick sandwich.
Cooked Country Hams are perfect for serving on a buffet for festive occasions.
Cooked Country Hams can be chopped or sliced, and substituted for (or added in addition to) other meats in lots of your favorite recipes like soups, stews, omelets, quiches, dinner casseroles, breakfast casseroles, as a topping for pizza, salad, or baked potato.
They may have aged spots (small white specks) which is a normal process of aging hams.
When re-heating Cooked Country Ham, make sure to add a little water to your baking dish and cover it with foil so your ham will not become too dry.
