Total time: 1 hour 45 minutes
A fully cooked ham should be baked to an internal temp of 140F (60C), about 20 minutes per lb. A ham that must be cooked should reach an internal temp of 150F (65C), 35 minutes per lb. for small hams and 22 minutes for larger (over 5 lbs) hams. All times assume a 325F (165C) oven.
Time: 10 minutes
A timeless tradition in my large, extended family. The original recipe came from "The Anderson House", a small family run hotel in my home town. For some, it's the only reason to have ham! Can be made ahead.
Note: if you don't have a double boiler, put a metal bowl on a saucepan partially filled with water. The bottom of the bowl should not touch the water.
