How Much Time Does a Honey-Baked Ham Keep in the Fridge?

A properly maintained honey baked ham can be securely preserved for 7 to 10 days in the fridge. Always keep this meat in the refrigerator.

For four to six weeks, a honey-baked ham can be frozen. For optimum results, wrap a HoneyBaked Ham in foil before freezing it. Refrigerate the ham for 24 to 48 hours so that it can defrost.

It is best to serve HoneyBaked Ham at room temperature. Before serving, the ham needs to rest for at least 30 minutes outside the refrigerator.

It is not advised to heat the ham in the oven because doing so can cause the meat to become dry.
