Hand cut ham that is vacuum packaged can be conserved for months in a cryogenic fridge. This is used if you don’t want to miss out on not a single flavor, texture or smell. Follow these simple steps when opening a sliced ham package:
- It’s very important that the ham is conserved in a refrigerator.
- Remember to take out the vacuum packaged ham 2 hours before serving.
- 20 minutes before serving, put the package under running hot water for 4 seconds. This will allow the ham to sweat and release the intramuscular fat that promotes the texture and flavor.
- After running it under water, open the package and let it sit for 20 minutes.
- Enjoy the ham!
