Q: How much does a whole leg of ham cost?
A: A whole leg of lamb should set you back between $11 to $20 per kilo depending on the variety and time of year. A leg of ham is available year-round but as it is an Australian Christmas classic it sends prices skyrocketing in December. Order your leg in advance to make sure you get the best quality for the best price and also so you don’t miss out!
Where can you buy a whole leg of ham?
You can buy a whole leg of ham pretty much year-round from your local supermarket. If you’re after a ham for a special occasion give your local delicatessen or butcher a call and order one to size.
A whole leg of ham is a commitment but you can purchase ham off to the bone from the deli year-round in the perfect portion for you. Throughout the year try the different cuts and flavours to work out your pick of the bunch before purchasing a whole ham for Christmas day.
You can purchase a whole leg of ham from the deli section of your local supermarket or alternatively from a butcher.
