Great recipes for your Manchester-Farms Berkshire Ham for Easter!

It is almost Easter and I have tried some wonderful Berkshire Ham recipes!  Check them out!


This recipe is one of my absolute favorites …. It is milk braised pork and is great with our Manchester-Farms Milk and  Berkshire HamIMG_0323        The recipe  calls for  a pork roast, but I use our fresh ham and it is excellent! Just make sure not to over cook the ham.

This is another wonderful recipe from Ina Garten for Baked  Virginia Ham  Again I use our fresh ham for this and make sure again not to over cook it.  I cook the ham for 10 to 13 min a pound.

Paula Deen has some great recipes too!  This is her recipe for Fresh Ham!

Enjoy!  Spring is almost here!

Inactive Prep Time:

Cook Time:
1 hr 0 min


35 servings for dinner, 50 servings for cocktails


1 (14 to 16-pound) fully cooked, spiral-cut smoked ham on the bone   ( use our Manchester-Farms 100% Berkshire Fresh Ham)
6 garlic cloves
8 1/2 ounces orange marmalade   (I use my homemade apple jam, but have found you can use any jam or marmalade)
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 orange, zested
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the ham in a heavy roasting pan.  (since I use a fresh ham, I cook it about 18 min a pound)

Mince the garlic in a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Add the marmalade, mustard, brown sugar, orange zest, and orange juice and process until smooth. Pour the glaze over the ham and bake for 1 hour, until the ham is fully heated and the glaze is well browned. Serve hot or at room temperature.
