Ham question

John E. | | Aug 8, 2010 05:51 PM

We just had a spiral-sliced ham for Sunday supper. Who buys these things anyway? How can there be over 400 Honey Baked Ham stores? We got it because a relative was moving and cleaned out their freezer. We had one once years ago and the ham slices were dried out and we haven't purchased one since that time. Knowing these hams dry out very easily, we heated it as directed, covered with foil. I took it out when the center was only 140 degrees. All but the center-most slices were dried out. So my question is, why are people still buying them? They must be people that don't really like ham but do like the convenience of having it already sliced. People eating this ham could get the idea that they don't like ham. The best thing about most bone-in ham anyway is the bone. It's just too darn hot and humid to make soup right now. I guess it can go into the freezer for a while.
