Bristol Farms has everything to celebrate this Easter holiday. From quiche and scalloped potatoes in our Deli, a full Easter menu offering from Catering, to rib roasts and lamb in our Meat department…and don’t forget the ham! Our Meat Departments are offering two varieties this holiday:

Kurobuta Ham

The Kurobuta Ham’s origins date back just over 300 years, when the Berkshire hog was discovered by Oliver Cromwell’s army in winter quarters at Reading, the county seat in the shire of Berks in England. Fancied for its tremendous eating quality, the Berkshire breed was refined in the early 1800′s and has remained pure ever since.

The Japanese discovered the wonderful flavor of this pork, imported the breeding stock, and the rest is history. Dubbed Kurobuta (“Black Pig”) by the Japanese, pure Berkshire pedigrees form the base of the Bristol Farms brand Kurobuta Ham. Our hams are pure bred Kurobuta pork legs that are cured and smoked to create a succulent, one of a kind flavor profile, and a tremendous eating experience. These hams are available in the meat department of your local Bristol Farms and will be a perfect addition to your Easter table.

DaBecca Uncured Spiral Sliced Hams

Known for their fantastic apple wood smoked bacon, DaBecca’s products are prepared “the old fashioned way”, using real smoke generated from real wood chips rather than liquid-smoke that is now the industry standard. The country’s top chefs prefer DaBecca’s products due to the incredible taste. They do not use fillers, preservatives, or any artificial ingredients. All of DaBecca’s products are minimally processed, naturally tender, juicy, and flavorful.

Spiral slicing is a process by which a bone-in ham is evenly sliced around the bone, yet left intact for ease of preparation and eventual carving. A simple knife cut along the bone will free the even slices for serving.

Our DaBecca hams are on sale for $5.49 lb March 23 – April 5, 2016. DaBecca Hams are a great choice for your Easter holiday celebration.
