Sweet-Ale-Glazed Ham

  • Yield 14 to 16 servings

A great ham to have as the star of a sandwich buffet.

Ingredients

7 to 8 pounds bone-in ham half, spiral-cut, cooked, with Honey Glaze Mix included
3/4 cup brown ale or porter beer
1 teaspoon mustard, grained
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350F. Place ham, face down, on rack in shallow baking pan. Cover pan tightly with foil. Bake in heated oven for 1 3/4 – 2 1/2 hours or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest portion (not touching bone) registers 135 degrees F. (about 15-18 minutes per pound).
  2. Meanwhile, pour beer in small saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, until beer is reduced to 3 tablespoons, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Stir in glaze mix, mustard and pepper.
  3. Remove ham from oven. Increase oven heat to 425F. Spread glaze mixture over ham. Bake, uncovered, for 5-10 minutes to set glaze until 140F. Remove ham from oven and cool slightly. Loosely cover with foil and refrigerate until serving time or up to 1 day in advance.
