COOKED VS UNCOOKED

All of our hams are fully cooked. If desired, our hams can be served directly from the refrigerator without heating. To warm, simply unwrap and heat at 325 degrees, one hour for a half ham and two hours for a whole ham.

LEAN PROFILE OF HAM

Ham’s lean nutritional profile is reason to celebrate this classic pork cut. Each 3 ounce serving of extra-lean ham contains 5 grams of fat and 124 calories, which is comparable to a boneless, skinless chicken breast. Ham is pork leg meat that has been cured, and since the leg muscle is a well-excercised part of the hog, ham is surprisingly low in fat.

HOW DO I COOK THE HAM?

Our smoked hams are fully cooked and ready to eat, but we recommend warming your ham before serving. Place the ham in a 325 degree oven and warm for 10 minutes per pound. Let the ham rest for 20 minutes before carving. While the ham is resting, we suggest that you also take a nap. When warming a Spiral Sliced ham, wrap the ham tightly in foil and follow the above instructions. Be careful not to overcook your ham!

HOW DO I COOK THE TURKEY?

Like our ham, our turkeys are smoked and suggest warming before enjoying. We recommend wrapping the bird in foil, then place it into a 300 degree oven and cook for about 10 minutes per pound. Remember to remove the stockinet and plastic wrapping first!

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO THAW A HAM OR TURKEY?

The best and safest way is to place your ham or turkey in the refrigerator to thaw. Allow for two days. If you find yourself in a hurry, you may thaw the bird or meat in a cold water bath, never hot water.

HOW LONG WILL MY HAM OR TURKEY KEEP ONCE I COOK IT?

After cooking, your ham and turkey will keep for 10 days in the refrigerator. Be sure to wrap tightly with foil! In some Eastern cultures, the leftovers are buried in the backyard and allowed to “age”. this is known as a Thousand Year Turkey. We DON’T recommend you try this.
