Why We Love Holiday Ham

Few things spell Christmas in the Philippines more than a smoked ham to join in the festivities. In a country where turkeys aren’t as easy to come by and roasts are expensive for the average household, a Christmas ham is a family favorite. The Baby Barangay girls were recently on the hunt for the best Christmas ham and after doing our research, we decided that Holiday Ham from CDO Premium came out on top.

Here are the reasons why we chose Holiday Ham for our Christmas festivities this year:

Reason 1 | Made from Premium Boneless Hind Leg: Holiday Ham is taken from a whole hind leg and not from other parts mashed together. You can tell from the way the fat is marbled into the ham that this is pure meat.

Reason 2 | Net Marks on Ham: It’s important to look for net marks when looking to purchase your smoked ham. Net marks means that the ham has been properly cured and smoked to perfection. Only whole meat hams can be smoked in a net.

Reason 3 | No Extenders: Holiday Ham is made from wholemeat so you don’t get any fillers in the ham like you would if you were purchasing a luncheon meat. Common extenders are fibers, flours, or starches; ingredients you shouldn’t be seeing in a ham. Thankfully, Holiday Ham is nothing but pure meaty smoked goodness.

Want to know how I personally love to have my Holiday Ham? I pan fry a slice in a little sugar and then put it into a pandesal with Queso de Bola. I then pan fry the pandesal again in a little butter until toasty and the cheese has melted.
