This classic and simple Paleo and Whole30 ham recipe will be bringing your family together each time you make it. The Whole30 leftover ham will just be a bonus! Being the holidays are approaching I wanted to share my favorite (easy) way to make a beautiful Whole30 holiday ham for your dining room table. A lot of people correlate ham with pineapple, and while I love that option, when I think of a holiday ham, I want savory, not super-duper fruity.

The holiday meals at my house always focus on the main event. AKA, the ham. I always look forward to the side dishes, but it’s the ham that’s at the center of the table that I want the most. When I was little I always assumed it took hours for my grandma to make, but now that I’m making my own holiday ham, I know it doesn’t have to be something you slave over all day.
Pederson’s Farms offers fully cooked and pre-sliced Whole30 ham options that you just have to heat and serve! It’s the best part about this recipe. Less time in the kitchen and more time spent with my family. They offer Paleo hams in all different sizes, but the half ham with the bone in is my favorite. It means creamy ham soup cooked low and slow with the ham bone and ham leftovers later!
You can get this holiday Whole30 and Paleo ham in the Ultimate Whole30 Box on The Simple Grocer.
This Whole30 ham recipe only requires a few things. A holiday ham, obviously! And then just whole cloves and mustard. Easy peasy and the ham is prepped and ready for heating in just a few minutes.
