Baked Ham

  • 1 ham (see notes below)

1. Allow 1/3 to 1/2 lb. per serving for bone-in ham and 1/4 to 1/3 lb. per serving for boneless ham. Heat oven to 325°F. Place ham, fat side up, on rack in shallow roasting pan. Insert meat thermometer so bulb reaches center of thickest part of ham, but does not rest in fat or on bone.

2. Bake at 325°F. until meat thermometer registers 140°F., using “Timetable for Roasting Smoked Pork.”

3. To glaze baked ham, pour drippings from pan; discard drippings. If necessary, trim fat, leaving only a thin layer on ham. Score ham by cutting diamond shapes about 1/4 inch deep through fat. If desired, insert 1 whole clove in each diamond. Spoon desired glaze (Brown Sugar Glaze for Ham or Creamy Mustard Sauce, for example) over ham. Return to oven; bake an additional 15 to 20 minutes.
