Minnesota Cooking: The Lazy Way to Cook Ham
Just a Shank
The Ham Was Not Special
Just a ham. Well. At least this is not a shank-less job.
[this is where we laugh together]
A Package of Ham Spice
Into the Bag it Goes
Ham Bags from the Grocery Store
Sprinkle All the Ham Spice - 2 Packs
You read that right. Orange juice went into the bag for moisture. The type I selected was Simple Orange juice with Pineapple. I used about one cup of juice. I just poured it into the bag and hoped it would find the bottom of the bag.
Sealed the Bag with Twistie
Really. That was all there was to it. The bag with the ham was already resting in the roaster pan. Took the twist tie and sealed the bag and put the cover on the roaster pan.
I then, placed the roaster in the oven at 325 degrees. The ham was frozen when I started and it will be in the oven for a few hours until the temperature of the ham reaches 165. Then, it's done; I expect it to be in the oven for 6 or 7 hours.
At 1 p.m., I can smell the ham.
