BOISE, ID--(Marketwire - Mar 14, 2013) - With Christmas dinner memories still top of mind, the task of preparing a gourmet Easter meal for a group may seem daunting, but Snake River Farms has home-cooks covered with its complete line of Kurobuta hams. Snake River Farms hams are known for their exceptional taste and juiciness, and come fully prepared and ready to serve in three sizes for any party: mini carver, bone-in ham and bone-in half ham. 

"Whether you're hosting an intimate meal or a large gathering for extended family and friends, the holidays should be a time to relax and enjoy your loved ones," said Jay Theiler, executive director of marketing for Snake River Farms. "This Easter we're excited to offer three sizes of Kurobuta hams that are both incredibly delicious and convenient, for parties of any size."

Snake River Farms' renowned recipe begins by using a traditional family cure that has been perfected over many years. The hams are smoked using authentic hard wood chips and the entire process is carefully monitored from start to finish to ensure a remarkably succulent ham. The result is a slightly sweet and rich flavor that highlights the exquisite taste of the Berkshire breed.

Kurobuta, Japanese for "black hog," is 100% pure all-natural Berkshire pork. This heritage breed is known around the world for its superior taste, texture and fat marbling and is often referred to as the "kobe beef" of pork due to its inherent juiciness and tenderness.
