Ham should have a reddish-pink color.
Refrigerate ham in its original wrapping. Sliced ham will keep four days in the refrigerator. Leftover ham, tightly wrapped, will keep for up to five days in the refrigerator.
Bake ham in a shallow baking dish at 325°F (160°C) for 10 to 15 minutes per pound. Remove the ham 30 minutes before it is done, score the skin into diamond shapes with a sharp knife, and stick a clove into the center of each diamond. Or baste the ham with a glaze made of honey, brown sugar, or fruit juice. Let the ham finish cooking, then let it rest 15 minutes before slicing.
