You can freeze cooked ham. Here is a good trick. You can slice the ham up into serving slices (or thinner slices for Sandwiches) and divide the pieces into packages for several meals or layer the slices with a plastic wrap between them and then take out how ever many you want, without them sticking together. This way you don't have to haul out a big ham and then end up throwing at least 1/4 of it out. If you don't want to do this, wrap the ham in aluminum foil so it doesn't get freezer burn and put a date on it. AND I also forgot. When you take it out get a needle and put vinegar into it. It should make it more tasty!!

How do you keep cooked ham from going bad?

Cooked ham will eventually go bad. Spoilage can only be delayed. Within an hour or two of cooking, separate the ham into smaller portions that will cool quickly. Then wrap and refrigerate. Plan to use it within 5-7 days. If more storage time is needed, the ham could possibly be frozen - but not all types of ham freeze well.
