Question about roaster my ham?

bryansdaDecember 24, 2012

I'm doing my ham in my electric roaster. Do I need to put any kind of fluid in the roaster to help keep it moist?

Do the same as you would in the oven, to my knowledge. Maybe Annie will see this and have a definite answer.

Merry Christmas!

Thanks Tami, but I haven't cooked a ham in years in the oven or the roaster. I did end up putting a little water in the bottom of the roaster. I thought it was better to add it than to have a dry ham.

Merry Christmas to you too.

Well, better late than never. It depends on the ham. A spiral sliced and fully cooked ham? Nope, I'd cook that gently until it was heated through, then serve.

A smoked but not pre-cooked ham? I'd put that on the rack and probably add a bit of liquid to the bottom, orange or pineapple juice or 7-Up if it were a glazed ham, water or coffee if it was not to be glazed.

I hope it came out well. Merry Christmas.

Annie said it well. Most any store-bought ham has water added anyway so there's lots of liquid in there. Even those marked "natural juices" are still water-injected. Beer is another good liquid for braising if you so choose to add, but if you're heating a ham rather than roasting it, you shouldn't have any problem. If it seems to be losing all the liquid in there, add a little moisture to steam and seal it up better.
