Expert Tips

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.

While the ham stands for 10 minutes, the temperature will continue to rise about 5°. You'll notice that the ham will be easier to carve as the juices set up.

Although this ham is delicious on its own, you may want to serve it with honey mustard, horseradish sauce, applesauce or a fruit chutney.
