How to Prepare Ossian Hams

Ossian hams are a regional staple for those near their Fort Wayne, Indiana, packing plant. The company offers cured, smoked spiral-sliced bone-in and boneless hams for the holidays. Order Ossian hams for yourself or as gifts by calling the company or sending an email through its website. Preparing these high-quality hams is the same as preparing any spiral-sliced bone-in or boneless ham. As they have been cooked and smoked before packing, all you need to do is reheat the ham for your dinner.

This ham is similar to the whole smoked hams sold by Ossian hams.

Things You'll Need

  • Baking dish

  • Pineapple slices (optional)

  • Ham glaze (optional)

  • Aluminum foil

  • Meat thermometer

Step 1

Store your Ossian ham in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 3

Place your Ossian ham in a baking dish. Optionally top it with pineapple slices and your favorite ham glaze.

Step 4

Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit until a meat thermometer registers 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Boneless hams require five to 12 minutes per pound and bone-in hams need 20 to 30 minutes per pound.

Step 5

Cool the ham for 15 minutes after removing it from the oven before slicing and serving.
