Q:

How Long Do I Bake a Precooked Ham?

A:

Precooked hams come in two types: partially and fully cooked. A partially cooked ham needs to be baked for about 20 minutes per pound in a 350 degree oven. A fully cooked ham only needs to be heated for about 10 minutes per pound in a 350 degree.

The ideal internal temperature for a precooked ham is 148 degrees F because it ensures optimal tenderness. Many precooked hams do not come complete with glazes. Many people add a glaze to a precooked ham to render it even more delectable. The glazing process does not add to the baking time; however, the glaze is perfected by turning on the broiler for five minutes at the end of the baking process.

    How do you fix salty ham?

    A:

    Some types of ham can be unpleasantly salty as they are injected with brine or dry cured through a process in which the surface of the ham is salted and the ham is stored so that the salt penetrates it. To remove this excess salt, the ham needs to be soaked in water before it is cooked.
