Do you glaze ham before or after cooking?
WHEN SHOULD I ADD THE HAM GLAZE TO THE HAM? Most ham recipes should be glazed towards the end of cooking, so the sugar doesn’t have a chance to caramelize too much. When there’s about 20-30 minutes of total time left to your baked ham, pour the brown sugar glaze over the top and put back in the oven to bake uncovered.
How do you use the glaze packet that comes with the ham?
Place refrigerated glaze packet under warm tap water 1 minute or until glaze is softened. Cut off corner of packet and apply glaze evenly over ham surface. Allow to sit 5 to 10 minutes while glaze melts into ham.
What does lightly score mean?
Scoring is lightly marking the surface of the meat with shallow cuts. For many recipes this allows flavours to penetrate below the skin of the meat coating more surfaces, resulting in a tastier meal.
