Q:

How long can ham be kept in the refrigerator?

A:

The length of time that ham can be kept in the refrigerator depends on the type of ham it is and the condition it is in. For example, cured ham that is in an unopened package is good for 2 weeks in the refrigerator, while it is only good for up to 5 days once it is opened. In general, leftover ham of any kind is still good to use for up to 5 days.

Hams that can have a longer shelf when kept in the refrigerator include an uncooked cured ham, which is fine for up to 7 days; unopened vacuum-sealed cook ham, which is good for up to 2 weeks; uncooked country ham, which has a shelf life of up to 3 months; and unopened canned ham, which is okay to use for up to 9 months.
