  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Unwrap ham and place face down in roasting or baking dish. Cover well with foil.

  2. Bake 12-15 minutes per pound (or cook according to specific package directions). Baste 1-2 times through cooking with ham juices that have accumulated in the bottom of the pan. Be sure to separate the slices as you baste. This ensures ham will stay moist.

  3. Once the ham is done cooking, brush generously with glaze (on all sides and between slices). Bake or broil to caramelize. Remove ham from oven and cover with foil to rest 10-15 minutes. Carve and serve.
