“A Rick Stein Food Hero and he knows what he’s talking about”
We are very proud to be the sole producer of the supreme and multi award winning Alderton ham. Created in the small village of Alderton by Colonel Dickinson, late of the Royal Ulster Rifles, his recipe for this deliciously moist and succulently sweet ham has been passed down through the generations but never altered; it’s still made today as he originally created it.
Steamed and then baked with a traditional Marmalade glaze, to our secret recipe, is what makes this ham a firm favourite with the well-heeled of London and ham lovers across the Country.
The Country Victualler is proud to have supplied Alderton Hams to Partridges of Sloane Street since their opening in 1973, also Fortnum and Mason.
Available as a Whole ham, Bone in or Boneless, Half, Mini and pre-sliced!
Large size hams weigh at least 5kg, serving approx 60-65 generous slices.
After many requests for a smaller version of our hams, we created our Mini Ham. Perfect for smaller gatherings and boneless for easy carving. Exactly the same as our other Hams, cut from the cured leg. With a minimum weight of 1.4kg, It will feed 10-15 people generously.
Storage advice: Each Ham has a ‘Use By’ date of up to 3 weeks. You can expect our hams to last that long in the fridge with their vacuum pouch intact. Store at 5°or below
