Cook’s Ham (Giveaway CLOSED 12/13)

Do you love ham as much as we do? I mean Yum! It’s both a holiday tradition and an everyday meal option in our home. We usually have ham for Christmas dinner, Easter dinner and sometimes just because! Ham is so versatile and I absolutely love having leftover ham in the fridge or freezer.

Cook’s Hams are slow-cure with natural ingredients like pure cane sugar, real honey, brown sugar and maple syrup. They’re then smoked using real hickory wood. Since 1983 Cook’s has been committed to offering affordable and high quality products to the consumer. Their high standards shine through with every delicious bite!

I suggest using the store locator to see if Cook’s is available in your area. General cooking directions are helpful if you’ve thrown out the package before reading! For more information on Cook’s ham and how to prepare a holiday ham and glazes, please visit HamTV, or find a variety of creative recipes using ham at HamIdeas. HamTV is my favorite part of the site! I love the old fashioned commercial style videos with that awesome voice-over! So fun!

    I learned that if you cook a bone in ham, you can use the bone to use in soups and stews for great flavor. Thanks so much for such a wonderful giveaway, this sure would be great for Christmas dinner!

    Bone-in ham only needs to be heated up. It makes it easy to shred the ham to use as leftovers and leaves the bone to be used in soup.
