Preparing a pre-cooked Ham

If you can get your hands on it, I highly recommend a Beeler's brand ham - the best of the best!!!
  1. Place oven rack into 5th position (last/bottom space) and preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Remove outer wrapping from ham and rinse thoroughly with cold water; place on paper towel-lined rimmed baking sheet and pat dry.
  3. Line roasting pan or deep baking dish with parchment paper or aluminum foil; place ham in pan then cover tightly with aluminum foil then poke a very small hole in the top center of the foil.
  4. Place pan into preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes per pound for boneless ham and 10 minutes per pound for bone-in ham.
  5. Prepare glaze 45 minutes prior to end of cooking time. During the last half hour of cooking time, remove pan from oven and ladle juices onto top of ham; pour on glaze and place ham back in oven. Cook 10 minutes then repeat this process; repeat 3 times, cooking the last time for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove pan from oven to wire rack to cool; remove ham from pan to serving tray and allow to rest for 30 minutes prior to carving and serving. Enjoy!
