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.
