- Thaw your frozen ham first.
- Pour 2 cups of water into the bottom of your roasting pan.
- Place your ham in your roast pan or baking pan.
- Cover tightly with aluminum foil or a lid.
- Bake at 325 degrees for 3 hours for a large ham.
- If your ham is small, you should be able to cut the time back by at least a half hour.
When your ham is tender, the meat should pull away easily when you stick a fork into it.
If you want to serve your ham with gravy or my Honey Mustard Sauce recipe, remove some of the broth now. See recipe below.
Continue to keep your ham covered and warm in the oven while you make the sauce.
When you slice your ham, some of the meat will still be clinging to the bone... That’s okay!
Stick the bone along with any extra broth in the frig.
The next day, you can add some water to the leftovers and simmer that bone on the stovetop for several hours.
This broth and bits of ham that will now have fallen off the bone will make a delicious soup base AND another meal! :)
Honey Mustard Sauce
- 1/2 cup ham broth (the liquid in the bottom of your roasting pan)
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 3 egg yolks
- 2 Tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard OR 1 Tablespoon prepared mustard
Whisk all ingredients together in a small saucepan.
Bring to a boil and simmer for a minute or two, whisking continually till thickened.
You are ready to pour some of this sauce over your ham or use it on the side as a dipping sauce.
This sauce is good, hot or cold.
My family declared it a hit! :)
