Spiral-Cut Ham with Port Wine and Citrus Glaze directionsHeat the ham
Preheat oven to 275°F. A low temperature is used here because the ham is fully cooked and requires minimal heating.
Remove ham from the wrapping and any additional covering; wipe ham with a clean towel. Place the ham in a roasting pan and cover entirely with heavy aluminum foil tightly. Heat according to package directions to warm the precooked meat to bring out its flavor and aroma.
In a large saucepan over Medium-High heat, combine all of the Glaze ingredients and bring to a boil. Then, reduce heat and simmer until volume is reduced by half (to about 1 cup / 237ml), about thirty (30) minutes.
Apply and caramelize Glaze
After ham is warmed, remove foil and brush ham with about half of the Glaze to add flavor. Increase oven temperature to 400°F with the objective of caramelizing the Glaze on the meat's surface.
Return ham to the oven until the Glaze is bubbly, about ten to fifteen (10 - 15) minutes.
Remove ham from the oven, and brush remaining Glaze onto the top and sides. Sprinkle the citrus zest on the ham surface; serve warm. Back to Top
