One of the perks of our fully cooked country ham is that it’s easy to pull out and use in a recipe or serve on its own. After you open up your fully cooked country ham, you probably won’t use it all at once. Here are some of our top tips for storing and slicing our fully cooked country ham:
- Never slice your country ham straight down. The best way to slice our fully cooked country ham is parallel to the bone. Compared with slicing the ham straight across, this is the best way to ensure the tenderness of your country ham.
- Storing our fully cooked country ham is easy! Just keep it in a cool, dry place until you’re ready to use it (be sure to check the “best by” date). After you break the seal, you can store it in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
- If you decide to cut up the ham, slice the entire thing and then wrap it up into individual servings. Then, freeze your ham until you are ready to use it again. This will make your ham last for quite a long period of time, and you can thaw and prepare individual servings as you need them.
