Baked Ham with Brown Sugar and Mustard Glaze

Baked ham has to be the easiest meat to cook for a holiday feast. Leftover ham is incredibly delicious in a variety of meals including casseroles, sandwiches, fried rice and served with eggs and toast.

I prefer to buy the bone-in precooked ham (shank or butt portion) as you can also use the ham bone to make either soup or congee. I especially love making my own glaze, as it tastes way better than the prepackaged glaze included with some hams.

8 to 10 lb bone-in precooked ham (shank or butt portion)

1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup prepared mustard
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Cook ham according to package directions or follow my instructions below.

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and adjust the oven rack to the second lowest position.

2. In a large baking pan, place the cut side down. With a knife, score the ham in a diamond pattern and cover loosely with aluminium foil.

3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes per pound.

4. Mix brown sugar, mustard and apple cider vinegar together in a bowl.

5. About 45 minutes before the ham is done, apply glaze all over the outside of the ham. Remove foil and allow it to bake uncovered for 45 minutes, basting with the liquid every 20 minutes or so.

6. Remove ham from baking pan and allow the ham to rest for 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
