We get asked about 11 times a day on average how to do the special topping (julskinka griljering) for the Swedish Christmas ham. It is not secret and we’re super happy to share a recipe.
Swedish Christmas Ham (‘Julskinka’) is made special by its mustard crumb topping. It’s really delicious – it adds texture and crunch and a lovely tang from the mustard.
You only add the topping before you serve, so first you need to get yourself a cooked ham. We sell the real Swedish hams ready cooked – and ready to eat. Delicious, lovely and succulent – perfect for your Swedish Christmas Julbord.
If you are using a pre-cooked ham, first open the packet, then remove the netting. Then clean up the ham by cutting away the fat layer on top – this can take a little while, so be patient and use a good sharp knife.
Once the fat layer has been removed, place the ham on your oven tray.
