Fresh Ham Roast
This recipe takes all of the guess-work out of preparing a fresh ham. Not a fan of ginger? No worries, your roast will not taste a bit like it, but the aromatics that the kombucha creates while roasting are irreplaceable! Delicious served with honey mustard.
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:



o  1 pasture-raised Fresh Ham roast

o  3-4 onions, quartered

o  5-6 cloves garlic, peeled

o  ¼ cup coarse Kosher salt

o  ¼ cup raw honey

o  2 cups boiling water

o  2 cups ice

o  1 Tbsp. olive oil

o  Fresh ground black pepper

o  1 bottle ginger kombucha


1.      Combine boiling water, ¼ cup honey and Kosher salt; stir until dissolved. Add ice and stir. 

2.      Remove fresh ham from package and place into a large bowl. Pour brine over-top. Cover and refrigerate for 6-12 hours. 

3.      Preheat oven to 450-degrees.

4.      Remove roast from brine and pat dry. Place on top of onions and garlic cloves in a large roasting pan with the fattiest side-up.

5.      Drizzle fresh ham roast with oil and season with pepper. Roast in the oven for 30 minutes.

6.      Reduce oven temperature to 350-degrees. 

7.      Pour kombucha into the bottom of the pan and continue to cook for another 45-90 minutes, or until a thermometer reads 145-degrees. 

8.      Remove to rest for at least 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!


The "fresh ham" name may be deceiving. Think of it rather as a pork roast, as it is uncured and unsmoked and does not have that ham flavor.
