My youngest daughter complained about what I was preparing for supper, many years back. I was preparing a spiral-sliced ham to be cooked on the Webber charcoal grill. She said, "Dad, you know I don't ;ike ham. So I tiold her that it was what was for dinner, and she would eat it.
At the table, I cut her a slice, and she loved it. It was so flavorful is what she said. Well, here's how I made it. Tis recipe is adapted for the oven, bnut is even better cooked over a drip pan between divided beds of charcoal, and apple wood.
chief's Christmas Spiral Sliced Ham with Honey-Mustard Glaze
The secret to this ham is the glaze, which is worked between the slices as the ham bakes in a slow oven. It keeps the meat moist, and tender, and perfectly compliments the ham flavor. If you like serving up ham for your Christmas meal, then this is a good one. And the leftovers cn be jsed in so many ways
1 bone in, spiral sliced ham
1/2 cup clover honey
1 cup water
1/4 cup yellow, or coarse grind mustard
Preheat oven to 325' F.
Heat water, honey, and mustard in a sauce pan, stirring until everything is well mixed. Place ham into a shallow, foil lined roasting pan. Use a pastry brush to work the glaze between the ham slices, and over the top. Place it into the oven. Roast for 1 hour, basting with the glaze every 15 minutes. Increase oven temp to 400' F. Rub glaze all over the ham surface, and roast for 15 minutes to create a golden patina on the ham surface. Serve with savory oven roasted potato wedges, and a good salad. Mulled, hot apple cider would be a great beverage to go with this meal. Enjoy.
Tip: You can substitute maple syrup for the honey, and omit the mustard.
