How long for Ham.

it is all gone, and the bone with a good amount of meat on, is in the freezer. well spent $$ and plenty of enjoyment eating it.

purchased a rather large cooked ham, and we still have about 1/3 left. just didnt get around to eating as much as I thought.
What can I do with whats left. It is beautiful, but starting to not want to eat anymore. thx

Slice it, fry it, and eat with eggs and toast

Chef_rainrain1, Jan 14, 1:53 pm

done that,
has anyone sliced it and put in the freezer. trouble is I forget it is there.

Chef_korbo, Jan 14, 2:03 pm

I sliced it all up and put it in smallish snap lock bags and put it in the freezer but in a place where you will see it every time you open your freezer.

did it go watery when thawed.

It shouldn't if using leg ham. This happens when freezing rolled pressed ham.

Chef_arielbooks, Jan 15, 4:02 pm

No mine didn't either but I wouldn't leave it in there for many months though. And yes mine was leg ham.

korbo, I can understand that you are about "hammed" out as far as eating the ham as-is, so how about having a look at:-

http://www.pork.co.nz/recipes-featured-recipes

You should find some interesting and tempting uses for your ham there. As others have advised try freezing some of the ham - in appropriate portion sizes to enjoy using some of those recipes in a month or two's time if you don't feel tempted enough at the moment.

Hope that helps. :-))

I just finished ours today. as I adore Cooked Ham its not a problem for me to use it. all the usual ways with ham steaks with sweet and sour sauce. chopped finely into meatballs, add to rice for fried rice. into croissants with cheese sauce and ham for dinner and lunches. I have never frozen it as I am not that organised to make sure I use it up within 3 months of freezing.

almost finished it. have friends coming for dinner tonight.Ham steaks on the BBQ with a mustard/brownsugar/pineapple juice topping. hopefully that will be the end of it. Very happy with the purchase.
