Farmers ham is without a doubt one of the most popular, most consumed hams in the world. It offers great flavor, it’s easy to buy, and is extremely versatile when used in the kitchen. The ham itself is smoked and can be consumed directly from the package, unlike bacon which should be cooked prior to consumption. Farmers ham is also a great substitute for bacon and offers a far more attractive price point.
Smoked farmers’ ham present a complex intensity thanks to the smokiness absorbed by the meat. It offers a slight sweetness combined with a saltiness, thanks to the seasoning of the curing process. This makes farmers’ ham the perfect choice for sandwiches, salads, and the perfect replacement for dishes that require bacon (should one not have bacon in their pantry). Farmers ham is perfect on Eggs Benedict. The smokiness of the ham perfectly elevates the poached eggs and complements the hollandaise wonderfully!.
To properly conserve and extend the ham shelf life, store in a cool, dry place, with the ideal serving temperature between 17-22º C.
