I purchased one yesterday for Easter. It's in the fridge. Many posters here recommended it so I thought I'd try it.

Are you talking about the Aldi's sprial ham? That's was I got.

The spiral hams are absolutely the most delicious hams. Who would have thought? I was spending way more for just a ham - not spiral and while ok, not as tasty as these. The ham just melts in your mouth. Don't hesitate to buy.

We bought the spiral sliced ham for the first time ever at Aldis. Just couldn't resist at .88/lb! My sister had bought a Kentuckian honey half ham at $2.99/lb and was so proud that she found it! LOL! I was waiting for a good sale. Oh, well.

I cut the Aldis spiral sliced ham into 2 portions and froze them, then cooked the bone with some leftover ham. It was the best ham we've ever had! Didn't use the honey/seasoning packet either. It wasn't very smoky tasting after cooking which is what we like--little to no smoky taste.

Oh I forgot to ask what the brand is or if they have more than one brand

I got one yesterday. I believe the brand is Appleton Farms.

I've made their ham, it's very good. Since DH is on a sodium restricted diet I canlt do that anymore.

Glad you liked it. Making ours tomorrow. Paid $1.49/lb. You got a good price at 88/lb!

Appleton spiral ham. Very good and lean. I will buy what is left over & marked down early next week as I am not cooking Easter dinner.

We had the Aldie's spiral ham yesterday for Easter lunch. It was delicious and sooo easy to fix/seve, and at $1.48 @ pound, it was a real bargain! I put it in my Rachel Ray large oval pasta pan, covered, and baked it at 325 degrees while we were at church. (I put nothing extra on it.) My husband, from East Chicago, also enjoyed the Polish sausages I bought at Aldies. (Dumped the entire package into a slow cooker set on low and cooked (nothing added) during church.) Before serving, I sliced them on an angle in 3" pieces - just the way I remember the little Polish ladies doing.

Mine was excellent too. Very tasty and not salty at all but I didn't use the glaze packet so maybe that made a difference. I glazed mine with pepper jelly for the last hour and then turned on the broiler for a few minutes and got it all bubbly and brown...delish.

I wasn't thirsty all evening which I usually am after having ham.

Loads of leftovers for the next few days...yum.

Definitely would buy it again.

A question: You baked it at 325? My package says to cook at 250. 15 minutes per lb. I cooked it 2 1/2 hours. Anyone else cook it at a different temp? I'd like to cook it correctly next time as we all thought it was delicious as well.

Very, very lean and I agree that I wasn't thirsty all night.

We also had our lst appleton spiral ham from Aldi. We though it was great. Very lean and not at all salty like all my hams in the past. I also baked ours at 250 for about 2 1/2 hours. I used the seasoning packed and mixed it with ginger ale. They all thought it was delish. :) I had tried to bake it in a slow cooker and some of you spoke about, but wouldn't fit in my cooker, I ended up baking it in my rachel ray bubble and brown pan. Worked fantastic. I will be purchasing a appleton spiral ham for all of our ham dinners.

I did mine at 250 degrees too. Came out moist and delicious.

OOPS!! I SHOULD have baked that ham at 250 per the directions (which I didn't read). But I baked it at 325 and it was just fine. I've been getting these hams at Aldies for several years. They usually have them year around and they always good and certainly easy to prepare. The leftovers make really good ham salad/potato soup/ham & beans/etc. My husband is diabetic, so I don't put a sweet glaze on it. HOWEVER, the hot pepper jelly sounds really good - maybe try it on MY ham sandwich!

We had one on Sunday as well at the house I was at for Easter. It was delicious and I'm normally not a real ham fan.

You can't buy love but you can adopt it. Adopt, don't shop.
