Minnesota Cooking: The Lazy Way to Cook Ham

Updated on February 5, 2016

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


Orange Juice

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.

It did.

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.

How About You

Do you like Ham with the brown sugar, honey and orange juice blend?

      i usually defrost the ham by putting them on a plate, on the dining table, 1 hour before cooking
