Savory Spiral Cut Ham

Savory Spiral Cut Ham created by NcMysteryShopper

I just love Spiral Cut Ham. I got one on Sunday at a very good price. When I got home I looked on Zaar for a recipe but couldn't find what I wanted. This is a culmination of a recipe that was suggested and my own ideas. This recipe uses an Oven Cooking Bag. I don't know how the recipe will come out if you do not use one. My ham came out so good and moist. The Oven Cooking Bags help to seal in the juices from the ham and any other ingredients you add to it. It keeps the juices from evaporating and drying out in the pan. I also noticed that the ham didn't take as long to bake as I thought it would. You also don't have to turn your oven to a high temp...only 325°F. It kind of slow cooks the ham. Spiral Cut Hams are precooked so you basically just want to warm them up..get them hot.

ingredients

directions

  • You will also need: 1 large Reynolds Oven Cooking Bag (turkey size).
  • Heat the oven to 325°F.
  • Put the flour into the cooking bag and shake the bag until it is completely covered with the flour.
  • Do not remove remaining flour from the bag (I didn't anyway).
  • This prevents the bag from exploding in the oven while baking.
  • Place the bag in a large cake pan or a roasting pan.
  • Open the bag and put the ham in it, cut side down.
  • Set aside.
  • In a small sauce pan mix the chicken broth, honey glaze mix, mustard and orange juice over medium heat until the glaze mix and orange juice concentrate are dissolved.
  • Pour it over the ham.
  • With a tie that came with the bag, tightly seal the bag.
  • Cut 6-1 inch slits into the top and upper sides of the bag to allow steam to escape.
  • Make sure the bag is completely inside the pan.
  • Do not allow any of it to hang over the sides of the pan.
  • Place on middle rack of the oven, allowing enough room for the bag to expand without touching the top heating coil.
  • This prevents the bag from melting.
  • Bake for approximately 1 hour or until the ham slices begin to separate and the top of the ham starts to brown.
  • Lower the oven temp to 200°F and let the ham sit in the oven until the rest of the meal is ready.
  • You could probably lower it to 175°F if you want to.
  • Spiral cut ham is precooked so it does not have to reach a certain temperature.
  • You are just warming it or making it hot for a hot meal.
  • When you are ready, remove the ham from the oven.
  • Allow it to cool enough to touch the bag.
  • Remove the tie from the bag and slowly tear the bag open at the top of it.
  • Remove ham and place it on a large plate or a platter.
  • Allow to cool slightly before cutting it.
  • Pour the juices from the baking/roasting into a saucepan and make gravy with it or pour it into a container and save it for soup.
  • Taste the juice from the ham.
  • If it is very strong tasting, (mine was) you may need to add water, a little at a time until it is at your desired strength.
  • Save the ham bone to make ham stock or soup with, leaving some of the meat on the bone.

    I appreciated the detailed instructions on using the cooking bag. This was the first time I had tried a ham in one. The ham turned out very moist. I do wish I had basted the ham though. All of the tasty sauce was in the bottom of the bag. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

    I DON'T LIKE HAM! Or should I say it has never liked me. I finally broke down and made this for the three ham lovers in our family. All three of them loved it. It tasted good but I avoid ham. I would use this again. Maybe I will let them have a ham once per year. I found a great price on a Farmer John Spiral Cut Ham. I will use the bone for Split Pea Soup. I know that I will enjoy the soup even though one of the ham lovers hates it. They liked the gravy I made with the juices from the bag. It is sweet but they enjoyed it on the ham.

    Followed this recipe with the exception of using fresh orange juice, did not have concentrate. Everything turned out great! I've never cooked with an oven bag and in 16 years of marriage, have never made ham. Loved everything about this recipe, including how easy it was. Would definitely recommend it.
