Place the ham, cut-side down, inside the plastic oven bag. Place the ham cut-side down inside of a roasting pan. Then bake ham for 160-200 minutes.


Meanwhile, prepare the cherry glaze. Once ham is ready, remove it from the oven. Open the bag and brush the ham with 1/3 cup of the cherry ham glaze.


Once ham has finished its final bake, brush more glaze and carve the ham, placing the slices on a platter.


If you don't like cherry, then you can use any preserves that you would like.

Take note: Precooked hams will take about 20 minutes per pound in a 250-degree oven to reach an internal temperature of 100 degrees F.
