    Default Semi-boneless ham

    How long will a cooked semi-boneless ham keep in the refrigerator? I cooked it Monday of last week, and still have some left. I hope it's not to late to freeze it. Can anyone help me? I was thinking 7-10 days, but not sure.

    If it has been kept cold and wrapped up tight, with no fingers in it picking at pieces, it is probably still fine. Have a good sniff. You'll be able to tell if it has gone off, it will have a sour slightly funky smell. One week is about my limit for something like ham, it's so full of salt and preservative it's a wonder it ever goes bad.

    If you are going to freeze, wrap it well with no air pockets around it. Ham freezer burns easily.

    This site should give you the information you are looking for:

    http://www.recipetips.com/kitchen-ti...ty-storage.asp

    From the link above:
    Refrigerating

    Uncooked or cooked ham can be stored safely in a refrigerator at 40F or lower for several days. The amount of time that it can be refrigerated will depend on the type of ham, how fresh it was when purchased, the temperatures it is exposed to in transporting from the store to home refrigeration and the type of packaging used.

    Another helpful link:
    http://whatscookingamerica.net/Infor...eezerChart.htm

    I use a 3-day rule for most foods, especially if it's going to be in and out of the refrigerator several times. I'll stretch it to 4-5 days if it hasn't left the refrigerator. If I don't think we can use something in that time, then I'll freeze it (if possible).

    If it doesn't smell "off", then I would think it would be ok. Again, it depends on how exposed to air it was, how many "sticky fingers" were in it, variations in temp. in the fridge, etc.

    It should be fine, all that salt and sugar act as preservatives.

    And if it's "blinky".. it's a technical term in our house for anything which MUST be use TODAY.... cut into small pieces and boil into potatoe ham soup!. Boiling kills germs.
