Christmas tree

Common to households around the nation come Christmas time – the Christmas ham conundrum. The reveal of a massive and delicious leg of Christmas ham for lunch comes with the burning question, how are we going to finish this?

Well, you can now store your Christmas ham for longer and lessen your ham wastage guilt.

According to the Food Safety Information Council, your ham can be kept fresh in the fridge for several weeks by getting rid of the plastic packaging and covering it in a clean cloth soaked in water and vinegar. 

But a word of warning, reduced salt hams will not last as long, so consider buying it in more modest portions.
