Ossian hams are a regional staple for those near their Fort Wayne, Indiana, packing plant. The company offers cured, smoked spiral-sliced bone-in and boneless hams for the holidays. Order Ossian hams for yourself or as gifts by calling the company or sending an e-mail through its website. Preparing these high-quality hams is the same as preparing any spiral-sliced bone-in or boneless ham. As they have been cooked and smoked before packing, all you need to do is reheat the ham for your dinner.
