SAUCE FOR BAKED HAM

All you will need to make this recipe is a large fresh ham. 

WHEN TO GLAZE BAKED HAM

when to glaze a ham

  • You want to glaze it two times, once before placing in the oven
  • Then during the 10 minutes of cooking time

CAN BAKED HAM BE FROZEN

Yes as long as it was not frozen to begin with. Simply slice it prior to freezing!

HOW TO REHEAT LEFTOVER HAM

Left over ham is the bomb!

It can be put into sandwiches the next day for the kids and or can be re heated in no time.

HOW TO BAKE A WHOLE HAM 

  • Simply rince the ham off and place into a large baking dish
  • Mix the marinade and coat the ham with it, leaving 25% of the marinade for the last 10 or 15 minutes of cooking.
  • Pre heat the oven to 400 f and once the oven is pre heated.
  • Place the ham face down on the pan and cook for 2 hours
  • During the last 15 minutes of cooking, glaze the ham once more and turn upright.
  • Remove from oven and slice before serving!

HOW DO YOU MAKE CROCK POT HAM

The first step is to choose your ham size.

For the holidays I will go with a 5- 7 pound ham.

And if i’m making a simple weeknight meal I will go with a 3-4 pound ham.

I will buy a raw ham once a year around the holidays. 

  • Start by making the marinade, by adding the sauces and ground cloves to a dish and mixing well.
  • Place the ham in a baking dish and pour over the marinade, making sure to coat the whole ham.
  • Marinade in the fridge for 30 minutes, then place in the slow cooker.
  • Cook on low heat anywhere from 2- 3 hours or high heat 1-2.
  • Be sure to check to make sure your ham is heated through.
  • If your cooking a raw ham, be sure to insert a thermometer into the thickest part of the ham. Your thermometer should read at least 140 degrees F before slicing to serve.
  • Also don’t forget to pour over the glaze from the slow cooker overtop of the ham prior to serving!
  • You can thicken it up, by heating it up for a couple minutes once the ham has been removed if desired!

WHAT GOES WITH BAKED HAM

Just about any type of vegetable!

Personally I like to cook some YAMS alongside this ham which makes for a 2 dishes in one!
