Ask Lisa: Frozen ham best used within 3 months
Q: My question is on leftover ham. We cooked a ham for Easter (March 27) and put leftovers in the freezer. How long will the leftover ham keep frozen?
— Erin Hennessey, Columbus, Ohio
A: Ham will keep indefinitely in the freezer and still be safe to eat. For the best taste and quality of leftovers, however, use the ham within three months.
