Making a large ham is always a good idea, as it can be eaten cold over the course of the next few days. Adding a tasty seasoning for the ham will give it additional flavor. To get the best results, follow the instructions below:

  1. Mix the seasoning
  2. Combine 1 cup of salt, 1/4 cup black pepper, and 1/4 cup of garlic powder. Allow these ingredients to infuse for as long as possible in order to bring out the flavor.

  3. Coat the ham
  4. Rub the ham with soy sauce, followed by the seasoning, making sure to completely cover the ham. Honey can be used in place of both the soy sauce and seasoning if preferred.

  5. Roast in the oven
  6. Place the ham in the oven at 325 degrees F, leaving it uncovered. Time the cooking at around 20 minutes per pound, or check the temperature of the meat using a meat thermometer (160 degrees means the ham is ready).
