Winner announced of the famous Suffolk Black Ham from Emmett’s of Peasenhall, worth over £150

Well done to John Brassey who is out lucky winner from issue 11.


Emmett’s has been on the same site in Suffolk since the 1820s and is the oldest ham and bacon producer in England. Their delicatessen and café is based in the pretty village of Peasenhall and stocks an amazing array of fresh fruit and vegetables, cheeses, cured meats, olives and irresistible Spanish Chocolate, with a pretty garden to the rear where you can enjoy a delicious home-cooked breakfast, light lunch or afternoon tea. All of their own ham and bacon is sourced from locally reared pigs and still cured or gently smoked in the old smokehouse behind the shop.

Emmett’s signature product, the Suffolk Black Ham, is immersed in a marinade of black porter beer and a mixture of other secret ingredients for up to 6 weeks, prior to being hot smoked for 2-3 days. This process produces a delicious ham that is rich and earthy, with a great depth of flavour, and has earned them a loyal following from the likes of Rick Stein, Ade Edmondson and Delia Smith.

aboutfram is delighted to have teamed up with Mark at Emmett’s to offer one lucky winner a whole black cooked ham on the bone and delivered in time for Christmas 2016.
