Why use a ham bag?

A ham bag is the best way to store a whole Christmas ham to help maintain its freshness and quality. We recommend keeping your ham whole and not pre-slicing the meat in order to keep it at its absolute best. Using a ham bag and regularly soaking it in vinegar and water will mean that the smoked ham can last longer, preventing it from spoiling.

Ham bag instructions

Our special Christmas bag comes with instructions on how to use a ham bag. They are easy to use and will ensure your meat stays as fresh as possible in the fridge. Before using the bag, be sure to soak it in 4 cups of water and 2 tablespoons of white vinegar. After soaking, wring out any excess solution before placing the ham in the bag. Store in the fridge, and repeat the soaking process every few days or whenever the bag becomes dry to keep your meat moist.
