Can You Refreeze Hams?

You can thaw, cut and refreeze hams. But you should only do it once though, if you thaw and refreeze more often, then the taste of the meat begins to degrade.
Also, if possible, donít thaw completely. There still can be ice crystals in the meat when you cut it. I donít know if you are using a saw or a knife to cut the hams, but a saw (especially a band saw) would make it easier for you.
Another tip, as soon as you have cut the hams, refreeze them immediately, or soon as possible. And try not to overload your freezer. The longer it takes to freeze the ham portions solid, the less the taste of the meat.
