How To Cook A Cured Ham?

How long does it take to cook a cured ham?

Put the ham, flat-side down, on a rack in a roasting pan.

Pour 1/4 inch water into the bottom of the pan.

Transfer to the oven and roast until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the ham registers 130 degrees F, about 2 hours, 30 minutes (about 15 minutes per pound).

Is a cured ham fully cooked?

The answer, in short, is if it is cured, smoked or baked, ham is considered “pre-cooked,” and would not technically need to be cooked. Even cured ham must be refrigerated at a temp of 40 degrees Farenheit or below. The exception is if the ham is canned or dry-cured, then it would be able to be stored at room temp.

How do you cook a cured uncooked ham?

Preheat oven to 325°F/160°C. Remove the ham from the can and place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes per pound until the center reaches 140°F/60°C. Let rest for about 15 minutes before slicing.

At what temperature and how long do you cook a ham?

Preheat the oven to 325°F. To heat the ham, place it on a rack in a shallow roasting pan, and bake uncovered. For a whole ham, allow 15 to 18 minutes to the pound; for a half, 18 to 24 minutes per pound. The ham will be ready when the internal temperature reaches 140°F.
