The spring holiday season brings a sense of renewal and celebration, often centered around a festive table laden with delicious, comforting foods. At the heart of many such gatherings is the classic holiday ham. Our Uncured Spiral Ham offers a modern take on this timeless dish, combining convenience and healthfulness with the rich, smoky flavors that have been savored for generations.
A Closer Look at Our Uncured Spiral Ham
Our Uncured Spiral Ham is crafted from pork that’s been slow-smoked over real Applewood. This careful process imparts a mild and slightly sweet smoke flavor, distinguishing it from the more commonplace ham offerings. Seasoned with just a touch of salt and turbinado sugar, this ham is fully cooked, gluten-free, and free from added nitrates or nitrites.
Preparing Your Ham: Keep it Simple
Unbox simplicity! Fully cooked and ready to serve, our ham requires only gentle reheating to bring out its best flavors. The key is to warm the ham through without drying it out, preserving its juiciness and tender texture.
- Place the ham in a baking pan and cover with foil.
- Bake at 325°F for about 10-12 minutes per pound, ensuring it reaches an internal temperature of 135°F.
Elevating Your Holiday Meal: Serving Suggestions
The right flavors and accompaniments can elevate your holiday ham from memorable to unforgettable. Consider pairing the ham with sides that complement its smoky sweetness, such as:
– A tart cherry chutney or a currant honey mustard glaze for a touch of brightness.
– Roasted seasonal vegetables or a rich, gooey cheese casserole to add depth.
– Fresh, spring-inspired salads to bring a crisp contrast to the table.
The Gift That Keeps on Giving: Creative Leftover Ideas
One of the joys of holiday cooking is the abundance of leftovers, offering the chance to get creative with the next day’s meals. Transform yourUncured Spiral Ham into:
– Savory breakfast casseroles or quiches, incorporating diced ham, eggs, and cheese.
– Comforting soups like a smoky lentil or a rich mushroom, enhanced with chunks of leftover ham.
– Light yet satisfying salads or sandwiches, perfect for a quick lunch or dinner.
