Easter is coming (and before you know it Thanksgiving and Christmas). Find out what the best ham options are to serve up on your table, according to a blind taste test.
Best Thick Cut Ham
Hormel® Cure 81® Bone-In Half Ham
Many spiral-cut hams have super thin slices that are great for piling high on sandwiches. For a holiday entrée, though, you may want a more substantial slice like with a Hormel® Cure 81® Bone-In Ham.
According to Catherine Ward in our Test Kitchen, “these slices are perfect for a dinner portion.” The thicker slices have a hearty feel. Also thicker cuts mean that this spiral-sliced ham won’t dry out as quickly as a finer slice. But you can make sure that any ham is moist and tender when you learn how to cook ham the right way.
As for the flavor, you’ll get hints of brown sugar and maple thanks to the glaze. Don’t think this ham is too sweet, though! Paired with salty, savory pork, you’ll have just the right balance. And don’t forget to serve this up with plenty of tasty sides, says Catherine.
