Cured ham is leg meat that has been dry- or wet-cured. Hams are labeled according to the amount of water added to the ham during the curing process. Because the leg muscle is a well-exercised part of the hog, ham is surprisingly low in fat.

bone-in ham half, spiral-cut, cooked, with honey glaze mix included
3/4 c
brown ale, or porter beer
1 tsp
mustard, grained
1/4 tsp
black pepper, freshly ground

Step-By-Step

1Heat oven to 350 degrees F. 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).

2Meanwhile, 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.

3Remove ham from oven.

Increase oven heat to 425 degrees F.

Spread glaze mixture over ham.

Bake, uncovered, for 5-10 minutes to set glaze until 140 degrees F.

Remove ham from oven and cool slightly.

Loosely cover with foil and refrigerate until serving time or up to 1 day in advance.
