  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Servings: 10

Ingredients

  • (1 8-10 pound ham) Ham, Bone-in & Cured
  • (1/2 cup) water
  • (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
  • (1 cup) Brown Sugar
  • (1/2 cup) Honey
  • (2 tablespoons) Dijon Mustard
  • (1/4 tsp) Ground Cinnamon
  • (1/4 tsp) Ground Cloves
  • (4 cloves, smashed) Garlic

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 300°F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy cleanup, and place the ham on the sheet.
  3. Score the ham with a sharp knife, making a diamond pattern about 1-inch wide.
  4. Pour water into the baking sheet around the ham.
  5. Cover the ham with aluminum foil and bake for about 4 hours, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 140°F.
  6. For the final 30 minutes of baking before the glaze, increase the oven temperature to 425°F.
  7. Prepare the glaze by heating the butter in a saucepan over medium heat until it's golden brown. Add the brown sugar, honey, and ground cloves. Let them simmer for 2 minutes.
  8. Reduce the heat to low, add the minced garlic, and cook for another 2 minutes.
  9. Pour the glaze over the ham, using a brush to spread it evenly.
  10. Return the ham to the oven, uncovered, and bake for another 30 minutes to set the glaze.
  11. Once done, let the ham rest for 20 minutes before slicing.

Enjoy this simple yet delicious ham from our farm to your family table!


NOTES: Keep the juices/glaze to pour over your sliced ham.  To reheat, pour the juices over your sliced ham and bake until warm.

Ham & Beans (save the ham hock for this). I love this recipe, but I sub my homemade chicken stock for the water to give it a richer flavor.  Here is the recipe I use!
