Cooking Ham In Air Fryer

Ham Air FryerIt is important to pre-heat your air fryer before you put the ham in so the air fryer has the chance to reach its desired temperature. The best temperature to cook the ham is 325 F. While your air fryer is pre-heating, you are going to wrap your ham in aluminum foil. The key here is to make sure the opening is at the top so it is easier to baste later on.

After it is wrapped, insert your ham into the air fryer face up. It is important that the foil and ham are not touching the top of your air fryer. If it is wrapped tight, it should fit perfectly. If not, don’t worry! All you need to do is slice a little bit of ham off the top so it can fit nicely into your air fryer bucket without hitting the top of the unit. Once your Halenda’s Meats Mini Ham is in, you can let it cook for 20 minutes.

Quick and Delicious Ham Glaze

After the ham has cooked for the first 20 minutes, it is time to apply the glaze. For this glaze, we tried to go with ingredients that you already have at home! All we did was add brown sugar, honey, apple cider vinegar, orange juice, cinnamon and salt & pepper to taste.

Mix the ingredients together in a bowl and you are ready to baste. The best way to baste is by getting out your basting brush and applying the glaze liberally to all sides of the ham.

Once you have applied the glaze, cook for another 40 minutes or until the ham reaches an internal temperature of 60 C! You should try and baste the ham every 20 minutes to make sure you get the optimal amount of flavour on your ham. If you don’t have the time, basting it once will do the trick as well!
