Holiday Ham Glaze (and Ham Heating Instructions)

While our Holiday Hams do arrive fully cooked, glazing and warming in the oven is a must if you want to enjoy the full experience. 

Our three ingredient glaze adds the touch of sweetness so often associated with holiday hams. Pepper with cloves for an extra festive flavor.  

Our hams arrive frozen, so make sure to plan ahead. Give you Half Ham 2 days in the refrigerator, and Whole Hams 3 days, to be safe.
