Swedish Hams back for Easter

Yes, we are making Swedish Hams for Easter 2021!

What is a Swedish Ham? 

They are raw, mildly salted and cured, boneless, skin-on hams. We salt and hand-tie each ham in our kitchen so it is ready to take home and bake. Before baking, they look like this (Half size shown):

The Swedish Ham is traditionally prepared with a mustard, bread crumb topping.  However, it tastes fantastic with no topping at all, or with a sweet or savoury glaze (ex: apricot jam, brown sugar + grainy mustard, ginger jam, etc).  Cooking instructions are provided with each ham and they are also available on our website here.  A fully cooked and glazed ham looks like this (Half size shown):
