Fresh Roasted Ham

Prep: 10 minutes

Cook: 6 hours

Serves: 13


1 fresh pork leg

Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Salt and pepper the pork leg. Leave the skin on for incredibly moist and succulent meat. Place the leg skin side up in a roasting pan. After about 20 minutes, turn down the oven to 325°.
  2. Allow 4-5 hours for ham to cook till an instant read meat thermometer reads 145°. Let the ham stand for about 45 minutes before carving. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat.
