Spiral cut ham

I always loved spiral cut ham - I consider it the perfect party food, it is so easy and tastes great.
Any idea of how to get some for the holidays? I live in Lausanne area; I wouldn't mind to order it and get it shipped, but I can't find someone to ship it here from the US... it has a long shelf life (smoked), so that wouldn't be a problem, but I guess the problem is it is a meat product...

I can find ham here, and it tastes great... but if I could just find one or two of the spiral cut, it would definitely make my day!!!

Is this what you are talking about?


Looks yummi. I think a butcher in Switzerland should be able to make your dream come true. Show him this picture and he will understand. En guete

Re: Spiral cut ham

I was wondering if it was similar to turkey twizzlers

Re: Spiral cut ham

that is EXACTLY what I am talking about... yummy, yes!
I am just sad nobody is importing it... but one of these days, I will travel with a ham-stuffed suitcase. )

Well, if anybody comes up with an address shipping in CH, the post would be very welcome.

(I have no idea what is a turkey twizzler...)

Re: Spiral cut ham

Why, Lilith, do you want to import ham to Switzerland? Only the way it's cut is different, the stuff as such remains the same if you buy it here. Or do I get something wrong here?

Re: Spiral cut ham

The problem with getting it cut like that is unless you eat it all at once, it tends to dry out.

Talking about ham, has anyone managed to get a leg or half leg on the bone here?

Would that be common enough for a local butcher to say yes or will he draw a blank? I will ask but was just wondering...

Re: Spiral cut ham

True enough, only the way to cut it is different. Actually, the size too, most of the time.
Having it for parties and big family do's is so easy - it is pre-cut, regularly and perfectly. A butcher would butcher the whole thing - done by hand is never as regular and thin... just like saying to cut by hand viande sechée!!! when you cut it in chunks, it doesn't taste quite the same.

I never had the problem of drying out. Most of it is eaten (for large get-together I used to bake two...), and what is leftover is easily wrapped in alu foil, and used for sandwiches - as it is pre-cut, you can use it in anything...

Anyway. Happy holidays!

Not of a problem for a real butcher such as Schönenberger in Horgen. A leg of ham (some cook it with honey!) is very popular for bigger parties. Ask, you'll be positively surprised, I'm sure. En guete
