Anna’s Happy Trotters Pulled Ham

Main courseServes 6

Using everything but the oink from their fantastic free range pigs, the East Yorkshire based Longthorp family’s award-winning products, sold under the Anna’s Happy Trotters brand really are the "la creme de la creme" of the porcine world! As well as welfare being high on their list of priorities, so too is the ethos of using every part of their pigs to create delicious dishes throughout the year.  This simple pulled ham recipe using the less popular shoulder cut, is cooked low and slow to create a mouth-watering dish with the same texture as pulled pork.  Perfect for a weekend treat.
