Why You Should Consider Making Spiral Cut Ham In A Roasting Bag
For the tenderest and juiciest spiral ham you’ve ever had, ditch the "low and slow" method and try baking your ham in a roasting bag, also known as an oven bag.
Begin by removing the ham from the fridge and give it about an hour to come to room temperature. Once warm, place it in the roasting bag with the cut side facing down.
Tie the bag and place it on a baking dish. Insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the ham through a slit in the bag and put it in an oven at 250 degrees Fahrenheit.
When the thermometer reaches 130 degrees Fahrenheit, remove the ham and let it rest for 15 minutes, which will bring the final internal temperature up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit.
Now you can remove the ham from the bag, glaze it, broil for a bit, and you’ll be left with a tender and juicy ham that’s ready to eat.
