The Best Time To Add Glaze To Your Ham
By SHAYE GLISSON
With its added caramelized color, satisfying flavor, and glossy sheen, a ham’s sticky, sugared glaze can sometimes be the most enjoyed aspect of a ham feast. However, if done incorrectly, it might cause more issues than you might think, such as drying out or over-burning.
According to Kitchn, you should cover the ham, cook it until it reaches 120 degrees Fahrenheit, increase the heat to high, glaze the ham, and bake it for an additional 10 minutes. Finalize the method by brushing the ham with the glaze again and broiling it until the glaze turns caramelized.
In order to prevent the sugar from burning, Better Homes and Gardens suggests adding your glaze during the last 15 to 20 minutes of baking. Once the glaze has been applied to every crevice, place the ham back in the oven to reheat before serving.
