Add a splash of bourbon to a simple mustard and brown sugar glaze to complement the smoky flavors of this tasty ham.
fully cooked smoked bone-in half ham (9 to 10 lb)
teaspoon whole cloves
cup packed dark brown sugar
tablespoons ground mustard
cup bourbon or apple juice
Heat oven to 325°F. Spray shallow roasting pan or 15x10x1-inch pan with cooking spray. Place ham, fat side up, on rack in shallow pan. Score outside of ham in diamond pattern; insert cloves into diamond shapes. (To make inserting cloves easier, use small paring knife or toothpick to make small holes before inserting cloves.) Insert ovenproof meat thermometer in thickest part of ham. Bake 1 hour.
In small bowl, stir together brown sugar, mustard and bourbon. Brush 1/2 of brown sugar mixture evenly over ham.
Bake 30 minutes. Brush with remaining brown sugar mixture. Bake 40 to 50 minutes longer or until thermometer reads 140°F. If pan drippings start to burn, add up to 1/4 cup water to pan.
Remove ham from oven; cover with foil and let stand 10 to 15 minutes for easier carving.
The larger amount of molasses gives dark brown sugar its darker color and stronger flavor.
Use any leftover ham to make sandwiches and save the bone for making soup!
