Storing ham in a bag

You've bought a brilliant ham from Seaside Meats and now you need to store it well to enjoy delicious cold cuts until there isn't a slice left on the bone.

Keep leg ham in a ham bag or a damp tea-towel in the fridge.

Soak the bag in a mix of 1 litre water to 2 tablespoons white vinegar then squeeze out the excess liquid, leaving the bag damp.  

Repeat the process every few days.  Do not wrap hams firmly, allow for some air circulation (to avoid sweating).

After glazing or serving your ham, cover and return it to the coldest part of the refrigerator as soon as possible.
Once your Seaside Meats ham is taken out of the vacuum packaging it should be eaten within three to five days.
A good option is to cut left overs into smaller pieces and they can be frozen for one to two months. This is great when you need ham for a quiche, pasta or pizza.
