    Default Christmas food questions

    Drinking eggnog on Xmas eve is a tradition for me. We usually make it at home, but obviously that is a no-no this year due to the raw egg. My first question is: is eggnog in that cartons you buy at the supermarket safe to drink? I'm guessing the pasteurisation process kills the bacteria, so it'd be ok, but i wanted to check.

    My second question is about Christmas ham. Are the rules for that the same as for sliced deli ham? I'm talking about a big leg (or similar) that is sliced at home and eaten cold. I love Christmas ham so much! Maybe I'll just have to heat it up or something. Has anyone heard anything about this?

    TIA

    Pasteurised eggnog is fine but I don't have an answer about the ham. Food should be heated to above 60* to be eaten so if you did that I'm sure it would be fine. Put it this way, I would eat it.

    I read in another post that ham off the bone is fine as long as you eat it as soon as its opened and while it's nice and cold, in other words not sitting on the table for a few hours.
    You can also have it cooked.

    Happy days

    Thanks ladies!! I've bought myself some eggnog, and I've decided that I'll cook up some ham for breakfast on Chrissie morning, and then just see what the ham is like once I get to lunch/dinner

    I love Christmas Ham sooo much, I'm hoping we can eat it straight off the bone. That would have to be my treat while everyone else is having their cold beverages
