  4. Cover with parchment paper, then tightly cover the pan with foil.

  5. Bake the ham for 40 minutes. Turn the oven to 325 degrees F and bake for 2 hours and 30 minutes longer, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part without touching the bone registers 120 degrees F.

  10. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 20 minutes.

  11. Strain the pan juices into a saucepan and boil over high heat for about 20 minutes until reduced to 3 cups. Skim off the fat and pour the juices into a warmed gravy boat.

  12. Carve the ham in thin slices and serve with the pan juices. Enjoy!
