Baked ham is one of the easiest things to cook for a holiday celebration. It's economical, even a half-ham can feed a dozen people, and a full ham typically goes on sale. The ham is already cooked, all you have to do is heat it to a serving temperature, and if you want, apply a nice glaze. We bought an already cut ham, which may be convenient for cutting, but dries out really easily when heated. We didn't let the ham rest at room temp before heating and we insisted on sticking with the ham guideline of an internal temp of 140°. So we ended up with an easy to serve ham with half of it rather dried out.
This year I asked my friend Anna to come over and show me how she cooks ham for her family gatherings. We cooked two hams, one with Suzanne's favorite sweet hot honey mustard glaze, and one with an intriguing honey thyme glaze Suzanne found in Gourmet. We scored the hams first in a diamond pattern, applied a glaze, cooked, basted with glaze, and finished browning in the broiler. Both hams turned out beautifully.
This is very delicios and taste good I will recomend it ru try for all.
