What is the greatest type of spiral ham?

What could be more festive than having the main course arrive dressed up for the occasion when hosting a holiday dinner? The appeal of a spiral-cut ham is just this.

We sampled six and determined that one stood out as the clear winner. (Note that it wasn’t from Harry & David, a mail-order behemoth whose website promises that “dinner guests won’t be able to help but swoon at the very aroma of its ham.”) That ham ended up being a little dry and chewy.) HoneyBaked was the clear winner, as it was tasty and consistently moist and soft. The ratings are based on taste tests in which our experts tried three different brands of ham.

These hams aren’t just for show; they’re also a once-in-a-while delight. Based on calories, fat, sodium, carbohydrates, and other nutrients, they all get a reasonable rating for nutrition. They offer up to 160 calories per 3-ounce serving, 10 grams of fat, and 1 to 4 grams of sugars. Applewood Farms has the fewest calories and fat, while Omaha Steaks has the most. (Amounts vary depending on how pigs are grown and processed.) The primary nutritional issue with hams is sodium, which can reach 1,020 milligrams per serving in top-rated HoneyBaked, about half of the daily limit.

Is Smithfield ham made in Smithfield, North Carolina?

A receipt to Ellerston and John Perot on the Dutch Caribbean island of St Eustatius, dated 1779, is the first record of the commercial sale of cured “Smithfield Ham.”

The Commonwealth of Virginia’s General Assembly initially regulated the use of the word “Smithfield Ham” in a 1926 statute that stated:

Genuine Smithfield hams are made from the carcasses of peanut-fed hogs grown in the peanut belts of the Commonwealth of Virginia or the State of North Carolina, and cured, treated, smoked, and processed in Smithfield, Virginia.

In 1966, the “peanut feed” and “peanut belt” restrictions were repealed.

The current law states:

…Genuine Smithfield hams are defined as hams that have been processed, treated, smoked, aged, cured by the long-cure, dry salt method, and aged for a minimum of six months, with the six-month period beginning when the green pork cut is first exposed to dry salt, and all of this salting, processing, treating, smoking, curing, and aging taking place within the corporate limits of Smithfield, Virginia.

While it is unclear whether the green pork (the raw product of the cured ham) may come from hogs raised and slaughtered outside of Smithfield, Virginia; the statute’s stipulation that the six-month (minimum duration) curing clock begins when the green pork is “introduced to dry salt”; and that the ham and its processing must take place within Smithfield, Virginia throughout the entire process

Any richer or more intense cure received from an age that lasts more than six months must also be done within Smithfield, Virginia, according to the statute.

Overall, this Costco ham tastes far superior to other hams I’ve tried. It’s not fatty, has a nice flavor, and is reasonably priced. In terms of nutrition, this isn’t the healthiest dish you could serve. This is something I would buy again and enjoy for the holidays or other special occasions.

Presliced spiral-cut hams are available. All you need to do is make a single lateral cut, and the meat will peel away in tiny layers.
