These Freeze Ham Slices are one of the best freeze dried products we have ever had! They are sandwich thickness and each freeze dried slice is 5 inches long. Once rehydrated, you can put the ham straight on your sandwich or use it for any recipe that requires fresh ham. All cans were sealed in an oxygen/moisture free environment. Each can weighs 10.5 oz and contains 15 Freeze Dried Ham Slices.

These Freeze Dried Smoked Ham Slices are current production over-runs, manufactured in 2019, from a large military defense contractor. We just purchased a large lot of this ham directly from a Defense Reutilization Office (DRO) Source. Although actual use is always classified on these kinds of bids, our information is that these are purchased for the Executive Branch use, not for our troops in the field. That usually means these go to underground bunkers for continuity of government use by strategic military leaders, congressional members and sometimes even White House staff or leadership.

As always, we opened several cans to try these out before we offer them to you, and these ham slices are amazing: maple flavored, juicy, tender, very tasty, and as fresh as the day they were flash frozen and dehydrated! 

Preparation: To prepare the ham, just soak it in water for 10-15 minutes and remove excess fluid. Use this ham in sandwiches, scrambled eggs, omelets, saute with vegetables, in stews, or any recipe that calls for ham. It is quick and easy disaster preparedness food solution Once rehydrated, they look just like regular ham slices you would get at your local grocer's deli. 

You can expect 25+ years shelf life as long as the steaks are sealed in the can - and probably as many as 30 to 40 since there is no water or oxygen in the can to spoil them!!! 

Once opened they will last:
  • up to 1 year in a Zip Lock bag with refrigeration once opened but not rehydrated
  • up to 60 days in a zip lock bag without refrigeration once opened, but not rehydrated.
  • up to 5 days in the fridge once they are rehydrated
These are perfect for storing and using for many years! You can have great tasting food in seconds with no mess and no waste - and it doesn't matter if the power goes out!! can open just one can at a time and have a great quality food ready to eat in only 15 minutes! Perfect for camping, boating, traveling, or at the cabin.
