We have a friend who smokes meat frequently. A couple of months ago, he gave us a smoked ham. It was frozen when he gave it to us, and I defrosted it over the last 24 hours. The ham is probably about 4 lbs, and has about 3-4 tablespoons of blood in the bottom of the bag. Is this usual, and is it safe to eat?
