How to Cook Your Easter Ham

Posted in Blog, Pork

Easter is another great food day of the year.  Family and friends gather to eat and celebrate their friendships and religious beliefs.  Making a delicious Easter Ham is both rewarding and easy.  Here’s how I make mine.

 

Easter HamMost hams on sale during this time of year are spiral cut.  This is an easy and quick way to serve ham.  However, if you buy a spiral cut ham you won’t be able to score it yourself (which is fine).

Easter Ham Glaze Add the honey, molasses and butter to a pot and bring it to a boil, melting the butter.  Stir it all together.

 

Easter HamFoil line a baking sheet and place a cooling rack into the baking sheet.  Lifting the ham up like this allows airflow all the way around it.  I like to place spiral cut hams like this to help keep it together while cooking. Insert a temperature probe into the ham and cook to 145 degree’s internal temperature.  Most hams are cured and say there are ready to eat….however, cooking your ham to a 145 degree’s internally will ensure it’s safe to eat.

 

Easter HamContinue basting your ham throughout the cooking process about every 15 minutes.  If the ham begins to get a little too dark simply tent it with some aluminum foil and turn the oven down to 300 degree’s.  Simply adjust the temperature to slow the cooking process as needed.

When roasting chicken in the oven it’s important to allow for air circulation.  The hot air that surrounds the food in the oven cooks it.  If air flow is inhibited food can’t cook evenly.  To remedy this simply line a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy clean up and Read More
