Cooking & Serving
Since it’s fully cooked, ham can be served cold, at room temperature, or heated, with or without glaze.
To heat, first, bring the ham up to room temperature. We recommend removing it from the fridge at least an hour before you plan on heating it. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
For the spiral ham, simply place it on a sheet of heavy-duty foil, with the cut side down. Wrap the ham tightly with foil and bake at 275 F until your meat thermometer registers 140 degrees inserted into the thickest part of the ham (assume 10-14 minutes per pound).
For added flavor and moisture protection, you can apply a glaze and bake the ham at 400 F for about 10 to 15 minutes until the glaze is browned and bubbling.
Ariane, D'Artagnan's founder, suggests a simple mixture of one part soy sauce to one part honey, but don't be afraid to get creative. A balanced glaze will contain a sweet element like honey, brown sugar, apricot preserves or pure maple syrup and a savory or acidic element such as mustard, soy sauce, vinegar or even your favorite Bourbon.
