Ease into Easter

On Thursday, April 10, 2014, the Hormel Foods Twitter handle (www.twitter.com/HormelFoods) hosted a Twitter chat where fans could ask questions to our Studio H experts, Lovoni and Joan about meal preparation, decorations and family traditions around the Easter holiday.

Below are some key questions and highlights from the chat:

Question: What's the best way to prepare a Hormel® Cure 81® ham?

  • The Hormel® Cure 81® ham is fully cooked. We recommend heating it in the oven at 325 degrees. For a boneless, 20 min per lb. For bone-in, 15 min per lb. Serving temp should be 140 degrees. For more tips and tricks, you can view our "Ham How-Tos Playlist"

Question: What are some easy sides?

Question: What are some easy glazes I can use on my Hormel® Cure 81® ham?

Question: What is a nice gift to bring?

  • Spring flowers like tulips are great. We also love unscented candles, and a nice bottle of wine or sparkling juice.

Question: What are some of your favorite ham leftovers?

Happy Easter from Hormel Foods!
