Prepare a Carver Ham
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Remove ham from packaging and place flat side down in a 2-inch deep baking pan, fat side up.
- Add package drippings and 1/2 cup water in the pan and cover tightly with aluminum foil to help retain moisture.
- Place pan in oven and bake for 15 minutes per pound, or until reaches desired eating temperature.
- Remove ham from oven.
- Let stand loosely covered with aluminum foil for about 10 minutes before slicing to serve.
30 minutes before baking is complete, remove aluminum foil and brush 1/4 cup of glaze onto top and sides of ham. Continue baking uncovered for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, remove ham again and brush with another 1/4 cup of glaze. Any remaining glaze can be used if desired, or served on the side as a dipping sauce. Return ham to oven and bake uncovered for the final 15 minutes.
Place warm ham flat side down on carving board or platter. Using a meat fork in one hand (to steady the ham), begin carving the ham with the other hand across the grain into 1/4″ thick slices.
