Ingredients

How to Make juicy baked ham

Step-by-Step

  1. Leave ham in sealed wrapping. Place ham in container of HOT tap water for 45 min.
  2. Drain off water, refill container with Hot tap water and leave in container an additional 45 min. The purpose of this is to even out the temperature of the ham so it doesn't overcook outside and cold in the middle. Overcooking is what dries out a spiral ham, especially.
  3. remove from water, take off packaging and the little plastic disk covering the bone.
  4. Place ham in an oven cooking bag cut side down. gather top, and tie cut slits near the top of the bag.
  5. place in baking pan. bake 1 hour in 275 degree oven (low) Meat thermometer should register 100 degrees.
  6. cut oven bag and roll down to expose ham. Brush with your favorite thick glaze. Boost oven heat to 350 degrees. return ham to oven about 10 minutes till glaze is sticky. remove from oven and brush again with glaze. tent with foil and let rest 15 min.
  7. My favorite glaze is made with Maple syrup and orange marmalade (combination of the two places I live)
