Full Answer

Green beans, asparagus, glazed carrots, broccoli, corn or a medley of roasted vegetables also make excellent side dishes for ham. Garden or spinach salads complement this meal as well.

Ham can be cooked in a smoker or an oven. Once cooked, the ham needs to rest for 3 to 5 minutes before it is carved. For safe consumption, this meat needs to reach an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

If glazing a ham, the glaze should be applied to the meat during the last 45 minutes of cooking.
