Ham is the meat from the hind leg and rump section of a hog. Ham is commercially available in many forms. Purchase ham fresh, canned, cured or fully cooked. Fully cooked hams do not require additional cooking and are often labeled "ready to eat" or "heat and serve". Always check ham labels for proper preparation and cooking instructions. Spiral-cut hams are fully cooked and ready to eat. Spiral-cut hams can be served cold, at room temperature or warmed in the oven. Warm spiral hams in a cooking bag to preserve moisture and prevent dryness.
