Rosengarten Kurobuta Ham Report

David Kahn Mar 29, 2005 03:57 PM

For Easter, I tried one of the Kurobuta half hams being promoted by the Rosengarten report. It was expensive, and I was fairly skeptical, but I have to say, it was, hands down, the best ham I have ever tasted. Incredibly juicy, smoky, flavorful, and just outright delicious. Since Sunday, I've been enjoying pieces of the leftovers fried up with scrambled eggs and fresh baked biscuits in the mornings. Culinary nirvana, I tell you! (Thank the Lord and pass the Lipitor!)

      I also posted re my Kurobuta (Berkshire) ham on the home cooking site.

      It was excellent--$95 (delivered) from Berkshire Farms (18 pounds).

        I had one also - agree it's the best ham I ever tasted.
        Did you cook it the slow way he suggested - I had an 18 lb ham and even though it came cooked we had it in the oven for 6 hours at 275 degrees.

        I've never had any Kurobuta (berkshire) before. I think it might be cheaper to go directly to Snake River Farms or another post mentioned Bershire Farms.

          I started out following his cooking instructions, but got impatient at the end and cranked up the heat to 350 for the last 30 minutes or so. Took about 2.5 hours for a 9 lb. ham.
