Frequently Asked Questions About Ham
Select a ham that’s fully cooked, bone-in ham with a good layer of fat. This will help keep the meat moist, tender, and juicy during cooking.
Bake the ham for about 15–18 minutes per pound at 325 °F, basting every 30 minutes. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the ham, which should reach 140 °F.
Basting a ham keeps it moist while baking. It’s easy to do with a basting bulb or large spoon.
Once the ham is baked, make sure to let it rest for 10–15 minutes before slicing. Using a shape knife, remove any unwanted fat. Place the ham flat side down on a cutting board and cut the ham into slices until you reach the bone.
