HAM SERVING, STORAGE AND CARVING TIPS

Serving sizes:

  • 7-8kg serves up to 16 people
  • 8-9kg serves up to 18 people
  • 9-10kg serves up to 20 people
  • 10kg+ serves over 20 people

Storage tips (courtesy of San Marino Smallgoods):

  • Store in fridge at 4c or below.
  • Leave ham in plastic wrap until ready to use.
  • Discard plastic wrap prior to use.
  • After carving, store remainder of ham in damp ‘ham bag’ which has been lightly moistened in 75/25 water / white vinegar solution.
  • Refresh ‘ham bag’ with solution every 2-3 days to maximise shelf life.
  • Please ensure ham is refrigerated as soon as possible after carving.

Carving tips (courtesy of San Marino Smallgoods):

  • Place ham skin side up. Then run a small, sharp knife under the rind around the bottom (opposite end to hock) and each side of the ham to about halfway up towards the hock,peel the rind back.
  • Run the tip of the knife around the bone, on the underside of the ham. Begin to slice on a slight angle down to the bone.
  • Run your knife lengthways along the bone to remove slices. Continue to slice toward the hock.
  • Continue slicing down to the bone, working your way around the ham. When you’ve reached about a third to the way up, you can remove the bone by making a few short cuts at the joint.
