RECIPE NOTES
NOTE 1: If not using immediately, stop at this point. You can store ham in the fridge for a couple (3-4) of days to be taken out on the big day. Or you can freeze it to extend the shelf life. Just make sure it is properly wrapped or sealed. Remember to thaw before using.
If it was previously frozen then thawed, it will need longer baking time at a lower temperature. Bake first at 150°C |300°F for 20 minutes without the glaze. Remove from oven and baste with the glaze and pan juices, bake again for 15 minutes. Turn up the temperature to 220°C|425°F and brush again with glaze and bake for another 15 minutes or until the outer layer becomes bubbly and dark brown.
