New Forest Pannage Ham

This very special air-dried ham is made from the legs of pigs released into the New Forest in the autumn to forage for acorns. This is known as ‘Pannage’ and is an ancient right that goes back to Norman times. The acorns flavour the meat giving it a distinctive ‘nutty, buttery’ flavour. New Forest Pannage Ham has been granted PGI status meaning that it can only be made from pigs released into the New Forest for Pannage.

The Great Taste judges said “The fat has a rich colour associated with a free-range animal foraging its food. A great ratio of fat that releases ‘melt in the mouth’ texture and fabulous tasting meat, sweet, savoury, rich with umami notes with the pork coming to the fore - totally delicious and very well made which keeps you going back for another slice.”
