So for all the cooking I do, I’ve never done a ham. I’m not a huge fan of pork, which is probably why. Note: bacon is not pork. Bacon is its own food group. Beef, pork, chicken, etc., and bacon.
So this year for one of the Christmas dinners, I did up ham. I combined a couple recipes found on the net and came up with below.
- 2/3 whiskey
- 2/3 c brown sugar packed
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
- 1/2 tsp ground allspice
- 2 tbsp fresh thyme
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- Bring the above to a simmer in a small saucepan, until slightly thickened.
- Score ham in a diamond pattern (skin on is fine) making sure to score only the skin and fat, not the meat, and put a light coat of glaze on the ham. Place on a rack in foil lined plan. Bake at 325F for 10 minutes a pound.
- Glaze every 20 minutes.
- Ham is done when internal temperature reaches 110-120F. Don't forget that the ham is already cooked / cured, you're just warming it up!
