Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°. Cut off tough, leatherlike skin from ham (if it has it) and score fat and meat in a crosshatch pattern. Put ham, fat side up, in a large roasting pan and tent loosely with foil. Bake until a thermometer in thickest part of meat reaches 120°, about 1 1/2 hours.

  • Meanwhile, make glaze: In a bowl, whisk sugar, zest, juice, and ginger until smooth.

  • Uncover ham and pour glaze over it into pan. Bake ham, uncovered, basting ham and stirring glaze every 10 minutes, until glaze is a thickened, shiny syrup and thermometer in meat reaches 135° to 140°, 15 to 30 minutes total.

  • Let ham rest 5 minutes, then brush with glaze and transfer to a cutting board. Scrape remaining glaze into a small bowl. Carve ham and spoon more glaze on top.

  • Note: Nutritional analysis is per serving.
