I had a bone in half ham for Easter. Fully cooked. Can anyone tell me why it was tough????
Never...in my whole life have I had a tough ham????? This was tough enough you could hardly cut it with a knife...let alone chew it!! What a disappointment!

My wife often gets one of those nice sliced smoked spiral hams with the glaze you put on late in the baking. Low temp. and no overcooking has helped us. Directions on the spirals are on the pkg. and pretty easy to follow. Have you tried one of these before?

cuckoo4rblackbe... yes i have had the spiral hams. And no...I didn't overcook it. Did it just like the instructions said. I have cooked many hams in my life...and NEVER had one like this...lol. Very strange. It did taste good however!

Marcy once we had a turkey that was yucky and the breast was fatty and marbled. We contacted the seller and received a coupon to replace it and it was fine. Your ham may have been a poor cut of meet I don't know?

I talked to a friend last night and asked her if she had ever had a ham like that? She said yes..she had...several! So maybe I have just been lucky that it never happened to me before...lol!
I checked all the local grocery ads before buying my ham...and bought the cheapest one that I could find...that too, may be part of the problem. I usually buy a more expensive one...maybe I should have???
