Can anyone recommend a gluten free ham?  I'd like both deli sliced ham and a half ham for Easter dinner. I read that Boar's Head deli meats are gluten-free, but would they remain that way after being sliced in the deli?

i eat boar's head all the time, with no issue.  i used to have them clean the slicer every time i went to the deli, but then the other brand of deli meat that they sell was declared gluten free, so i don't worry so much.  they didn't mind wiping down the slicer, though.  the boar's head ovengold turkey breast (on udi's bread) is my "safe" sammich <for when i have done myself in and have to 'reset' or when something is bothering me and i can't figure it out without a food journal)

 

it's great for when i'm visiting people, too, because i can usually find boar's head someplace nearby.  kroger has it, publix has it, some little goobtown deli in new mexico has it...  so, even if nobody wants to or can cook gluten free for me, i always have something i can eat :)

The deli I usually use only sells Boar's Head, so there has never been an issue there of CC for me. The other deli I sometimes use I either go to early in the morning to be the first customer as they open, or I simply ask them to clean the slicer.

 

For Easter the past few years I've simply gotten whatever ham I like at the store. My husband and I have taken a liking to Cook's brand, which does a plain, bone-in ham. Nothing special or fancy, it's just like my grammy always made. We usually pick it up at Wal-Mart for a steal. We did get a couple around Christmas on sale though and I froze one that I have for Easter this year. I don't remember the brand, but it's a spiral sliced ham and even the glaze is safe. That's what you have to watch, the ham will almost always be safe while sometimes the glaze isn't. If you find a ham you like in a package like this, just don't use the glaze. I've done it before without issue.

 

Mmmmmmm........ ham. I'm very excited for Easter. Pigs are my favorite animal. :D

Hormel Cure 81 is really good, I think that is their premium line.  Hormel products seem to be labeled gluten-free on the label when they are, I want to say all their hams are but of course, double check.  Jones dairy farm hams are all certified gluten-free and really good, but Im not sure if they have big spiral sliced ones.  Like Addy said, it is more common to find gluten in the glaze.

Primo Taglio deli meats are gluten free.  Their Ham Off the Bone is excellent.  I don't know if you can get a whole or half ham, but I've had the person give me a slice about 2 inches thick, which makes a lovely dinner for two.  It's lovely thin sliced for sandwiches, too.  (on Udi's bread, of course!)  Honey Baked Hams says their hams are gluten free, but I haven't experienced that for myself.

Self diagnosed gluten intolerant, gluten free since 12/09.
Diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 15 years ago. Fibro symptoms have improved but not gone away with gluten free living.
Osteoarthritis, mostly in hands and neck and lumbar spine. Not sure if going gluten-free has helped that problem, but it certainly can't hurt. (Am very grateful that so far no sign of the RA that is devastating my mother lately.)
Considering a dairy free trial. Considering.

Thanks for the responses.  My desire for ham turned into quite an expense with an "over-protective" husband.  He went to the deli market for the Boars Head ham and decided there were other brands being sold also, so he didn't want it on the slicer.  Smart man!  BUT, instead he asked for an uncut half ham.  So, he came home with a 4 lb. Boars Head ham that cost $41!!!!  Yikes!

I just want to add: Thurman's and Black bear's deli ham, salami and other meat products are gluten free. They sell them at Shoprite. I'm also asking for clean slicer and clean gloves. In addition to that, they must open a brand new piece of salami, turkey, etc. for me. I'm buying things that are on sale, so they don't complain about  that.

Omg husbands are so hilarious! Now send him to Bed Bath & Beyond, or some other kitchen store to buy you a deli slicer. :lol:

 

Deli meat freezes really well. We buy big packs at Costco for my husband for work. Theoretically, slicing it all yourself and freezing it is a great idea! (you have no idea how hard it is not to fall out of my chair laughing while I say that that's a great idea... who needs their own deli slicer?)

I actually kind of want one.

 

Slicer smartass, not your finger. :P My husband is afraid of them, and I'm not sure why. I actually watched a guy cut part of his finger off and my attitude is still "meh" I'll try not to be a moron. Ooooorrrr.... maybe Lucys shouldn't own them.

Ah yes good point by Addy... deli meats and ham do freeze really well.  I freeze everything since cooking for two without waste can be a challenge.
