M15478 - Paula Deen's Smithfield 7.5lbs Honey Cured Ham
I have never had such a horrible ham. I rate it - 10 stars.
For over 30+ years, I have ordered hams from a small producer in Vermont. Once in a blue moon I have bought Smithfield hams while in VA. But they are such a lot of work ..scrubbing, and soaking, and...
Do not ask me why I thought to order this ham; This ham had a texture that I cannot even think of how to describe. Each slice had something like a 1/16" inch of fat alternated by 1/16" meat. And so on. It was leathery and dry. It was sort of like corrugated cardboard. The texture obviously was poor. I hope this makes sense to everyone.
I took one bite and threw the ham out. It was inedible. Hmm, maybe a -10 is too generous.
OH MY GOSH!!!! You go Paula!! Great ham.
Bought this for Easter, but too many people so I bought larger different ham.
Ha! I am so glad I did that. I just fixed this ham today and no one is here except for me!
I don't think I am going to share this with anyone else. It is the best. It is a bit salty, but thats what is soooooo good about it.
I took the foil off after it was warmed up good and got it real brown on the edges. I will have no problem purchasing this ham again. Love ya Paula!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Best Ham Ever
I have served this for the past few years.We all found this to be less salty than other
honey hams out there.
Terrible! Way too salty--inedible!!!!!!!!
We were very disappointed! Terrible! Way too salty--inedible!!!!!!!!
Way too salty
I was very dissapointed with this purchase. I served it on Christmas day and everyone was in agreeance that it was way too salty. This was my first and last online food purchase.
YUM YUM YUM
This is the best ham!! Have purchased it for the past couple of years, and will continue to buy them. Love Paula and love Paula's Ham!
I sent this ham to my Dad. He served it for New Years Day dinner. He said it was the most tender and best tasting ham he had ever had. Paula Deen sure knows her stuff! He is looking forward to the next one. Thanks again QVC for making gift giving so easy and yummy!
Delicious and Easy
This ham was moist and sweet with the glaze all ready on it. I took it out of the freezer five days before to thaw and put it in the oven on Christmas Day for 90 minutes and voila! A great meal. It was perfect and even lasted for leftovers for a week. I would order again.
This year I was in a turmoil. It was my year to host the family Christmas Dinner and My husbands father had just gotten out of the hospital and could not travel. The family members live all over the state and travel a pretty good distance to be together. I decided to cook the dinner and take it to his parent's house about an hour and a half away from our home where we would all gather. I did most of the cooking the day before and we served Paula Deen's ham and her fabulous turkey. Everyone raved about our dinner. We have one VERY picky eater and he will only eat ham....he loved it and just went on and on about how wonderful the ham was. Everyone loved the ham and the turkey and I will order it again. Thank you so much QVC and Paula for rescuing our day.
I bought this ham for Easter last year, but then got invited to go out for Easter dinner. I put the ham in my freezer and just took it out for Christmas Eve.
It was delicious. I just used the leftovers for a split pea and ham soup.
The only thing left of this ham was the bare bone.
I will be getting another one. It was moist and very flavorful, everyone raved about it and wanted to take home the leftovers, which as you see I kept for myself.
Cooking instructions on glaze packet
Purchased for Christmas Eve dinner for a crowd. I started to get worried days before when the thawing/cooking instructions were not readily seen on the product label. I checked on QVC website and no instructions there either. On Christmas Eve day, I finally did find the instructions for heating, which are written on the glaze packet, along with instructions on using the glaze (which is optional). The ham was great; although it did have a good amount of fat. I recommend that Smithfield put more visible preparation instructions on the product. It shouldn't be so hard for the end-user to figure out how to cook a product which the purchaser spent a significant amount of money to buy. The carving instructions are clearly visible (it's presliced?); but not the cooking instructions?
