Beginning this week, Kirkland Signature Martha Stewart Favorite Holiday Ham will be available at Costco Wholesale warehouses nationwide.

These hams are the first in a series of Kirkland Signature Martha Stewart food products that will be available at Costco. President of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Stewart first announced the meat-based initiative in May. Most of the remaining products will be launched throughout 2008.

Developed from Stewart's library of recipes, the co-branded Kirkland Signature Martha Stewart food products bring the dishes featured in Martha Stewart Living magazines, books and television programs to Costco stores.

The featured holiday hams are produced from hogs raised without the use of antibiotic, MSLO officials say. The bone-in hams are slow cured for three to five days, and are then lightly smoked over applewood chips for 12 to 14 hours.
