For a moist, juicy, herb-infused ham, bake it in an oven bag with rosemary sprigs. The sweet, tart English sauce highlights red currant jelly, citrus, and port wine, and spices up each slice of ham.

How to Make It

Step 1

Unwrap ham, and remove plastic disk covering bone. Tuck rosemary sprigs randomly between every 2 or 3 slices of ham. Place ham, cut side down, in an oven cooking bag; place in a 13" x 9" baking dish. Close bag with tie. Trim excess plastic to 2". Cut 3 (1/2") slits in top of bag. Bake at 275° on lowest rack for 2 1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer inserted registers 140°.

Step 2

Remove ham from oven; let stand in bag with juices 15 minutes. Remove ham from bag, and transfer to a carving board. Separate slices, and arrange on a serving platter. Garnish, if desired. Serve with Cumberland Sauce.

This is so easy and the rosemary flavor is wonderful! I buy spiral cut hams and just throw away the enclosed honey sauce packets now, because this is much better! I made the cumberland sauce once to go with this, but wasn't that impressed. I actually prefer the savory ham by itself.
