Premium Quartered Spiral

Heating Ham

Preheat oven to 275°F. Remove all packaging materials and place ham face down directly into baking dish or roasting pan. Cover tightly with lid, foil or place in cooking bag and heat at 275°F for approximately 12—15 minutes per pound. (Estimated heating time: 45—60 minutes.)

Glazing Ham

Remove ham from oven 10 minutes before end of heating time recommended above. Open glaze packet and brush half of the contents on surface of the ham (see tips below). If ham was placed in cooking bag, carefully cut bag open and pull away from ham, then apply glaze. Heat glazed ham uncovered for 10 minutes at 275°F. Remove ham from oven. Heat remaining glaze in microwave safe dish for 20 seconds and serve with ham.
