Prep & Cook Time: min.
Glazed Holiday Ham (serves 12 – 15)
Smoked or fully cooked ham (15 – 20 lbs)
Preheat oven to 325oF.
Insert meat thermometer into center of meat, being careful not to allow it to touch bone or fat.
Place ham in a roasting pan and cover. Place ham in oven and set timer for half the recommended cooking time. (Recommended cooking for most hams is 20 minutes per pound).
Meanwhile, combine honey and brown sugar in a heavy-bottomed sauce pan.
Over medium heat, stir the mixture together until all the sugar has dissolved, then remove from heat and stir in the mustard. Set aside.
Once you have reached the halfway point in your cooking time (approximately 2.5-3 hours), remove the cover from the ham and brush the glaze over the entire ham. Place ham back in the oven, uncovered, to finish roasting. *If you have glaze remaining, save it for later. It makes a great dipping sauce for the ham.
Roast until ham reads internal temperature of 155oF, occasionally basting the ham with the drippings from your pan.
Remove from the oven and let the ham rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
Slice it and serve warm or chill it and slice later for delicious sandwiches.
