“Do you leave the foil on a Honey Baked Ham?”

Keep the Honey-Baked Ham in its original foil wrapper or remove the wrapper and wrap with your own foil to prevent drying out. Maintain the oven temperature at about 275 to 300 degrees. A general time guide is to heat for 10 minutes for every pound of ham.

However, you can wrap individual spiral slices in aluminum foil and heat them. If using a conventional oven, cover the entire ham (or portion to be used) and heat at 275 degrees F for about 10 minutes per pound.

“Do you leave the foil on the ham?”

Tightly wrap and seal the ham with foil so none of the juices escape. Place the ham in a baking pan and cook for approximately 20 to 25 minutes per pound, or follow the directions on the package for cooking times. A fully cooked ham will be done when the internal temperature reaches 130 degrees F to 140 degrees F.

“When baking a ham do you cover it or leave it uncovered?”

Cover either the ham itself or the pan with foil. Make sure it is covered well so the ham doesn’t dry out. Set the oven to 350 degrees and bake the ham, basting every 15-20 minutes. Uncover the ham when you baste it, but then cover it back up when you put it back in the oven.

“How do you heat up a Honey Baked Ham?”

HoneyBaked hams and other hams sold at the grocery are fully cooked and should say so on the label. Technically what you are doing is reheating them, not cooking them further. It is best to reheat them gently in a 325-to-350 degree oven until the internal temperature reaches 135 degrees.

“Are you supposed to cook a Honey Baked Ham?”

We recommend that you do not heat your Honey Baked Ham® or Turkey Breast – they are made to enjoy right from the refrigerator. If you prefer your meat warmed, gently heat on low heat, only by the slice, not heating the entire ham or turkey breast. Heating may cause the meat to dry out and lose flavor.

“Do you wrap a spiral ham in foil?”

The second key to a moist spiral ham is to wrap the ham with foil to help keep the moisture in. If you are planning to apply a glaze do so in about the last 15-20 minutes of cooking with the foil removed. You don’t need to wrap the bottom of the ham. With the bottom open, fat has a place to run out.

“Can you cook ham without aluminum foil?”

If you prefer to cook your ham in an oven bag rather than aluminum foil, that will work too. Simply follow these instructions and then bake as per the recipe below… Put 1 Tablespoon of flour into the bag and shake it well and then leave the flour in the bag.

“Do you cook a ham face down or on its side?”

Remove all packaging materials and place ham in a shallow roasting pan. Quarter and half hams should be cooked flat/face-side down. Whole hams should be cooked fat-side up. Cover pan tightly with aluminum foil.

***

“Do you put water in the pan when cooking a ham?”

Gently cook the ham with at least 1/2 cup of water, wine, or stock in the pan and cover it with foil to make sure the ham won’t dry out (until you’ve applied the glaze—then, the foil comes off).

“How long should you bake a fully cooked ham?”

If you’re starting with a fully cooked city ham, bake it in a 350 degree F oven for about 10 minutes per pound. If your ham is only partially cooked, bake it for 20 minutes per pound. To help keep your ham moist and juicy, place the ham cut-side down in a baking pan and tent it with foil.

***

“When should you glaze a ham?”

In most cases, you will want to glaze the ham during the last 15 to 20 minutes of baking. If you glaze it sooner, the sugar in the glaze could cause it to burn. You will need at least 1 cup of glaze for every 5 to 10 pounds of ham.

***

“Is ham OK to eat if left out overnight?”

Do not leave the ham at room temperature for more than two hours. If it is not going to be used within four days of cooking, it should be frozen. Uncooked or cooked ham can be stored safely in a refrigerator at 40°F or lower for several days.

***

“How do you heat up ham without drying it out?”

If you’re left with a solid chunk, place it cut-side down in a roasting pan, add liquid (water works in a pinch, though a sugar glaze or even cola will impart a nice flavor) to keep it from drying out, cover and bake at 325 degrees until the ham hits an internal temp of 135 degrees, which should take about 10 minutes
