Hormel to make it extra special! Hormel sent several of their Cure 81 Boneless Hams and I did the rest! If you have a large party planned, don't be afraid to buy larger hams and slice them yourself. You'll save money, and it doesn't take a lot of time. Plus, your guests will know you didn't take any shortcuts by using presliced meats. Not that that's a bad thing. I simply like my guests to know that they are really special, so I go all out!
