Your ham will ship in a sturdy corrugated gift box. Because of the unique salt curing process, ice packs or dry ice are not required for shipment. Please refrigerate upon receipt.
Jordan Hams may be refrigerated unopened for up to 6 weeks, or opened and tightly wrapped for up to 10 days, and still maintain maximum flavor. Tightly wrapped country ham (do not use aluminum foil) may also be frozen, off the bone.
Heating is recommended to enhance the full flavor of the wine glaze. Heat in aluminum foil on low heat (275°F) until slightly warm and apply wine glaze as noted below.
GLAZING & SEASONING:
Wine Glaze is included: Add seasoning pack to 1/3 cup of water in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave mixture for 30 seconds. Stir until smooth. Apply liquid glaze to top of warm ham. Your ham has been dry cured with salt, no further seasoning is recommended.
Your Jordan Ham is best carved at room temperature. With ham on a flat surface, dressed side up, begin about two inches from the hock (or small end) and make the first cut straight down through to the bone. For each succeeding cut, slant the knife slightly and cut thinly towards the first straight cut (in the direction of the hock). Continue slicing thinly down to and partially around the bone. Decrease slant as the slices become larger, while keeping the slices thin. Eventually the bone formation will cause you to cut smaller slices at different angles. The key is to keep the slices thin! Be sure to keep the bone and remaining meat for seasoning.
Best served as the focus of a buffet, carving station, or pre-sliced for ease of serving. A savory complement to a poultry or seafood entrée. Perfect for biscuits, or chopped for salads and omelets. Use the bone and leftovers to season soups, beans, or vegetables.
