Hi Everyone!
I couldn't find any information on here that gives a list of gluten free hams. I did see one for turkeys (very helpful!!!). Does anyone know of any hams that are gluten free? My aunt is bringing the ham this year and I want to make it as easy on her as possible and would like to provide her a long list to choose from. Here is what I have so far:

Hillshire Farms - Turkey and Ham both gluten free
Honeybaked Ham - NOT GLUTEN FREE
Hormel Cure 81 - Boneless and Spiral Cut hams are gluten free

Thank you in advance!!

I always get Publix Spiral ham. It's listed as gluten-free on some lists and I can attest to the fact that it does not make me sick. BUT, I usually just have the ham by itself. Combining too many different food items when I'm eating something like ham (that I am not used to eating) wreaks havoc on my system. I have some ham and a little mashed potatoes - or some ham and a little bit of a vegetable.

I like Cooks. I've bought their ham slices as well as their larger hams.

Hams are almost without exception gluten-free as long as they aren't pre-glazed, like the Honeybaked. If there is wheat in the glaze, both the FDA and USDA REQUIRE that it be listed. Just like with turkey, all you need to do is look at the ingredients.

my mom gets the spiral cut hams from Sam's club and throws away the glaze packet and makes her own glaze. I've never gotten sick from it.

I think she just uses brown sugar and honey... I'll try to remember to ask her later.

We don't eat ham very often because I can never figure out what to serve with it. Ideas?

Potato salad is great. Green beans. Cole slaw. Sweet potatos. Salad. Anything that's gluten-free really.

One of the things I've learned about being gluten-free is to eat whatever whenever, as long as it's gluten-free. Got some leftover chicken or tuna salad and no real breakfast in mind? Hey, lots of good protein there. Same with nuts. Spread some hummus or peanut butter on a rice cake.

I know that doesn't have much to do with ham, but once you have diet restrictions, you need to look at everything. A friend of mine who has traveled to the far east for business talks about how they eat ANYTHING for any meal. Noodles, fish, any dinner leftover. This is MY favorite breakfast and lunch.

Chop up leftover ham and add to any egg dish, any bean dish or soup, make ham salad, make casseroles with rice and spinach and swiss cheese, make halushka: finely ribboned cabbage fried with caraway seeds, onions, and paprika and served with ham, bacon, or sausage and noodles (gluten-free of course), grind up the ham and use like ground beef for ham loaf. Cook the bone and any leftover meat on it for soup stock, especially good with beans, carrots, potatoes, and tiny dumplings (beat one egg, add a little salt and gluten-free flour mix until it hold together like a soft dough, then crumble into boiling soup - the Pennsylvania Dutch call these rivvels). I just baked a 12-pound ham (shank half) and I now have a dozen or so little meal-sized packets in the fridge along with a meaty bone for future soup. And at $0.99 a pound it beat the heck out of any of the ham slices at the store.
