Luxurious Hams & Chops
We hand-select extra fancy pork to create the finest hams and chops. Trimmed to exacting specifications, our pork is bathed in maple syrup and secret spices and slow-cured for days....giving the meat the sweet flavor that's been prized in New England hills for generations. Our hams and chops are enveloped by natural applewood smoke for nearly a day. The result is a perfect balance of sweetness and smoke to satisfy the most tasteful professional.
For a sweeter, glossier glaze, brush ham with a little maple syrup about 30 minutes before it is ready to come out of the oven.

MUSTARD & BROWN SUGAR GLAZE
