  • Step 2

    Preheat oven to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C). Place ham in a roasting pan.

  • Step 3

    Bake in the preheated oven, checking occasionally, about 10 hours. If ham begins to darken at that point, cover with aluminum foil. Continue baking, about 2 hours more.

  • Step 4

    Increase oven temperature to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C). Bake, coating ham thoroughly with the glaze mixture every 30 minutes, about 2 hours more. Remove from the oven and let stand 15 to 20 minutes before slicing. Serve any remaining glaze with ham, if desired.

  • Cook's Note:

    You can use a 10- to 12-pound ham.
