Jack is Cooking Glazed Ham

Well Hello Internet!

Ok so the Other main event of Christmas Dinner is a Ham.  this year i decided to make a Glazed Ham, and of course since we’re on the Farm it came from Herondale Farm.  It is the BEST ham ever, end of story.

So this is almost easier than the Turkey
Heres what you’ll need:
1 Ham (with the Bone in)
a whole bunch of cloves
1/2 cup Maple Flavored Rice Syrup
1 Tablespoon Mustard
1/2 cup orange juice

Take the Ham and with a sharp knife, cut a grid pattern into the fat on top.  the grid should leave a whole bunch of 1 inch squares through the fat.  Then take a whole bunch of cloves, and poke one clove into each of these squares.

Put in an oven at 325° for 18 minutes per pound.

Meanwhile to make the glaze:
put the rice syrup, the mustard, and the orange juice, in a small pot and mix together.  then bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes, stirring, and careful not to let it boil over.

when the ham is 30 minutes away from being done, pour half of the glaze over the ham.  at this time you will have noticed that a fair amount of fat has pooled up around the ham.  take this and spoon it all over the ham too.  this will give it some extra deliciousness in the final moments of cooking.
when there is 15 minutes, pour the remaining glaze over the ham and baste again

Remove from the oven and let rest for 30 minutes, under tin foil.

mmmm mmmm delicious (more than delicious)

  1. Not sure if this would be possible to do yourself (well, it's definitely possible, probably not advisable…which makes it more tempting), but I hear that at Honeybaked, that fine purveyor of ham, they glaze the beast with a blowtorch at the end of the cooking process. This from a man who may or may not be my boyfriend and may or may not have worked at a Honeybaked ham store as a youth.

    Long story short–Jack, I would love to read a post about you glazing a ham with a blowtorch. Lemme know if it happens.
