Easy Moist Ham

Recipe by IHateToCook
READY IN: 5hrs 15mins




  • Foil line a lipped baking sheet.
  • Place the ham with the large side down on the foil.
  • Mix the applesauce, brown sugar and mustard in a bowl and then use your hands to cover the ham all the way around.
  • Cover ham with foil.
  • Put it into a 350 degree oven at 350 degrees for 14 minutes per pound.
  • After it's done cooking (about an hour for a 4 lb ham), take off the foil and use your hands to cover the ham again in the sauce. Lather it on their well to create a crust.
  • Bake some more until the crust is crispy.
  • When done, let the ham rest for about 1/2 an hour.
  • Then spoon the pan drippings in between the slices for more goodly sweetness.
  • Serve while warm --I served it with cheesy mashed potatoes with sour cream and chives and cheese and brocolli. (My family are cheese-aholics).
  • Served with some warned up buns from the baker and sweet cream salted butter.
  • Enjoy!
  • Save the leftovers for ham sandwiches (I just left it in the fridge and people made what they wanted with leftover ham and rolls.).
  • Take the end part of the ham and put it in a big (like a tamale pan) pot, add carrotts, onions, peas and chicken stock to cover. Add some spices that you like (I put in some ginger and salsa--Mrs. Dash and salt and pepper). We ate that with rolls for Christmas dinner after going to the movies all day.
  • So, three meals in one ham! Total cost for all three meals for 5 people was less than $10. Including purchasing all the ingredients (except spices, carrots and onions I had on hand).
  • This'd be a great Easter recipe too!
