    Why is it I always wait until the last minute to request help from you? I really do try to plan ahead but obstacles always seem to come up.....
    Now....I'm wondering if I can cook a fully-cooked ham in a Reynolds Oven Roasting Bag. Can I put pineapple, brown sugar, etc. on the Ham before putting it in the bag or do you suggest doing that just before serving. Any great toppings that would enhance the ham? I plan to purchase a bone in Shank portion of ham.....your quick response would be soooooo very much appreciated as I'm going shopping soon....well, pretty soon. Thanks in advance.

    Sure, you can cook that shank portion bone-in in a Reynolds oven roasting bag.
    I have done it several times with good results because the bag steam cooks the ham well, retains its moist with juices and seasonings for more flavor. I cook it at 350ยบ F. for approximately 30 minutes per pound in an oven bag.

    Besides of the pinapple and brown sugar, you can also use honey-mustard or apricot jelly or mango chutney mixed with some orange juice for glazes.

    Here are some tips and instructions to cook it:

    And here is a video which shows how to do it without the bag and tips ideas for the seasonings and toppings:

    Cooking in a roasting bag keeps the meat very moist, but can be too wet for my tastes.

    Since the ham is precooked and only needs to be warmed through, I wouldn't use a bag, but if you do, open it up halfway thru the warming time.

    Cut open the top, peel it back some, to let the steam out. CAREFUL, dont burn yourself.
    Leave the bag open & then add your toppings. It will form a nice crust this way. Otherwise it will seep into the ham.

    I forgot to tell you that when a ham is cooked, the internal remperature should mark in a thermometer at least 165 degrees.

    And here are some other interesting tips that can also help you to cook any kind of ham with or without roasting bag:

    When I make an Easter or Christmas ham, we have come to prefer Cranberry Glaze (For Ham). It isn't quite as sweet as the usual pineapple/brown sugar glazed ham. icon_confused.gif

    A ham can't be properly glazed in a cooking bag (at least I've never had luck doing it). The ham stays too wet for the glaze to caramelize well.icon_sad.gif

    Nice recipe Dee.
    And yes, this is what I was trying to get across in my convoluted message.

    Check out the CI recipe I linked earlier - you open the bag to apply the glaze and let it properly adhere to the ham. It really worked well.

    Wow! Wow! Wow! I made the ham in the oven bag...Absolutely fabulous. I did take the advice to slit the bag half way through cooking and put the glaze on (Pineapple/Brown Sugar/Mustard/Cloves). The glaze didn't stay on the ham but it didn't matter anyways...it had a touch of taste and was sooooo moist!!! Thanks ladies, you did make my Easter Dinner a hit!!!
