Ham is a traditional choice for holiday dinners. If you have never served one during your family feast, don't be intimidated! Our bone-in, fully cooked hams are slow brined and brown sugar cured to make serving up a delicious feast a breeze.
Slow Cooker Method
Place the ham in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 5-8 hours until ham is thoroughly heated. To glaze, score the ham and place on a broiler pan and cover with glaze; broil 10" from heat for 10 to 15 minutes, watching carefully until the glaze is cooked.
Place the ham on a rack in a roasting pan. Add water to the bottom of the pan and cover tightly with lid or foil. Bake at 325 F for 15 to 18 minutes per pound until a meat thermometer registers 140 F. Basting the ham as it heats will add to the moisture and overall flavor. Unwrap the ham, score it and apply the glaze; increase the heat to 400 F and bake for 15 to 20 minutes longer until the glaze is burnished.
Glazing the Ham
Bear Paw Meats bone-in hams are brown sugar cured, giving it a delicious flavor. Sometimes, people desire even more flavor. That's where glazing comes in. An easy glaze recipe is one part jam, jelly or honey with one part Dijon mustard. We have fabulous Montana Made Huckleberry Jelly and Chokecherry Honey that would make for one amazing ham glaze!
