WHAT KIND OF HAM SHOULD I BUY?For this Honey Baked Ham, I advise you to get a fully cooked, bone-in spiral cut ham (aka spiral sliced ham). Why?It’s not only easier to find in stores, but also you’ll only need to warm it up.
FRESH VS. CURED VS. SMOKEDFresh or uncured hams are uncooked. They are also not so easy to find in most grocery stores in the U.S. and cost a bit more per pound.Cured hams have been dry or wet brined and fully cooked.Smoked hams are cured hams that have undergone an additional smoking process.
UNCUT VS. SPIRAL HAMUncut hams tend to be moister. They hold in the juices. But you had better have an electric knife to slice them.Spiral hams are easier to serve because they come sliced. But don’t worry! Depending on how you reheat them, you can still have a moist ham.
HOW TO MAKE HONEY BAKED HAM RECIPE- Let the ham sit at room temp for 1-2 hours before baking.- Add a liquid to the roasting pan: water, broth, wine, or a fruit juice. The liquid steams around the ham, creating a moister ham.
- Position the ham face down so that the juices can baste the ham all over.- Bake ham.- Baste ham with the liquid/drippings from the bottom of the pan.- 1. Brush ham again with remaining glaze and serve ham with pan drippings.
