Full Answer

Spiral sliced hams may be eaten cold, but may be easily warmed by following the instructions on the package. When a meat thermometer registers 140 degrees F, remove the ham from the oven and let it rest 10 minutes before serving.

To keep the ham from drying out when warming it in the oven, place it on a rack in a roasting pan and add water to the bottom of the pan, covering the entire thing tightly with foil.

    How long does it take to cook a 3 1/2 pound roast in a slow cooker?

    A:

    Allowing for prep times, which includes searing the meat on all sides before putting into the slow cooker, it takes between 8 and 9 hours to cook a roast, such as a beef pot roast, on the low setting. Cooking the roast on the high setting can reduce the cooking time by as much as half. Roasts are typically made in a slow cooker with vegetables in a broth, which can be used to make a gravy.
