One of my employees gives me a ham every year and this year it's a spiral sliced Honey Baked glazed ham.....I've never had one of these before.

I want to freeze it but I'm not sure if I need to put it in the oven first. It has a bunch of brown sugar/honey caked on top.

Do I heat it in the oven , let cool, and freeze or should I just freeze it as is?

 

BTW it's one of those giant, bone-in hams

Does it have the crap on it? Or the crap in a packet that you add during re-heat?

Whether it's our original spiral-sliced Ham, tender Turkey Breast, side dishes or Gourmet Desserts, you know you'll be serving the best (without all the stress)!
Serving instructions for The HoneyBaked Ham and HoneyBaked Turkey Breast Product Care

Refrigerate the HoneyBaked Ham and Turkey Breast as soon as you receive it.

In the refrigerator, the HoneyBaked Ham will stay fresh for 7 to 10 days and the Turkey Breast for approximately 5 to 7 days.

To freeze unused ham portions for later use, wrap in aluminum foil and freeze within 5 days of thawing. The HoneyBaked Ham can be frozen for up to 6 weeks. To serve again, place in refrigerator for 24-48 hours ahead of time to thaw. Once thawed the Ham will keep for 2 days.

Serve at Room Temperature

The HoneyBaked Ham and Turkey Breast are fully cooked and ready to enjoy. For the very best flavor, take the Ham or Turkey Breast out of the refrigerator and allow it to stand at room temperature a half-hour before serving. Refrigerate unused portions immediately.

Heating may cause the Ham or Turkey Breast to dry out and lose flavor.

Your Turkey Breast is pre-sliced. To release the slices, separate slices gently with a knife.

Sectioning Your Ham
  • Using a knife, cut around the bone of the Ham.
  • Cut along the natural muscle line to remove the top section of slices.
  • Cut straight down from the base of the bone to release the remaining sections.

It's fully cooked. I've taken them and cut the meat off the bone, put in smaller portions that are vacuum sealed and frozen for future use, I.E.  sandwiches, omelets, etc.

I thought about it but doesn't he want canned hams? ;)

 

Does it have the crap on it? Or the crap in a packet that you add during re-heat?

 

It's got the glaze kind of packed on top....looks like a flattened out pile of brown sugar. That's why I think I probably need to cook it first and let it melt and run.

It's huge and tasty ( sig worthy there) and I don't want to #### it up...

That's the plan but the glazing part has me stumped...

 

BDA - I'll be using that cutting illustration when it's ready!

I opened it a little while ago.

It wasn't vacuumed sealed though...foil-ish wrapping that has a plastic wrapper over it with a twist tie..definitely not totally air-tight.

Yeah, but dat glaze tho....I think it needs to go in the oven to make that happen.

At least I think so...

Honey Baked Glazed Spiral Ham..

 

I think I'll toss it in the oven tomorrow at the recommended temps and see if the sugar packed on top melts.

 

If I was going to serve it immediately I'd just cook it ( or heat it up really) ....that's obvious.

But I just want to cut it up and freeze it...and I'm afraid heating it up too many times will dry it out. It's not moist like a picnic ham..

It has a great flavor as is...spiral-cut isn't my first preference but it's a free, giant ham!

Last year he gave me one of those giant, bone-in whole hams...about the size of a pregnant Golden Retriever..

I whittled the meat off that until there was just two bones in an 'L' shape. I ate ham for freaking months!

Yeah, it's the glaze piled on top and the fact that I want to freeze it that has me wondering...I don't want to mess it up.

I'll get a few slices in the mail for ya..

Depends on the steak. If you're sneaking from the fridge at 2am, good invented nothing better than honey baked ham. And that includes dick bones.
