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!!
