Ham Glaze

This has become my favorite recipe for ham. I prefer to buy a bone in ham so that I can use the leftovers to make ham and bean soup. So make sure you save that bone!! It provides a phenomenal flavor to your soup.

Ham Glaze

1 Cup Brown Sugar

1/4 Cup Yellow Mustard

2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar

Mix the ingredients together. Place your ham in a high sided pan – I like to use a 9 x 13 baking dish. Score your ham with a sharp knife with a criss-cross pattern cutting about 1/4″ into your ham. This allows the glaze to penetrate into the ham and give it a really nice flavor. Pour your glaze over your ham, allowing it to soak into the cuts you have made. I like to use a basting brush to coat the ham well. Reserve some of your glaze so that you can coat your ham again about halfway through baking. I like to cover my ham with foil during the first half of the baking as well. When I pull it out to re-glaze I keep the foil off. Cook your ham at 350°F for 15 minutes per pound or until it reaches an internal temperature of 140°F. Allow your hame to rest for 3-5 minutes before slicing.
