Oma did it again with her glazed ham. This one turned out juicy as always. One of the biggest secrets to a good ham, is to purchase a whole ham rather than a spiral ham, as they tend to dry out when you cook them. I cant wait to get the leftovers and bone in the crockpot today for some delicious bean soup!
You will need:
A whole bone one ham, no spiral
Follow heating directions per pound
Can of frozen orange juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup Cognac
1/2 cup honey
Bake ham for 1/2 time before you score and glaze. After ham has baked for 50% of cooking time, score and add 10-12 whole cloves. Dont score to deep or you lose juices.
In a microwaveable bowl, add juice, sugar, cognac and honey warm through until blended thoroughly. Baste every 20 minutes until last hour then every 10 minutes. Once it gets dark tent with foil so you don’t burn the top.
Remove from oven and allow to sit atleast 15 minutes before slicing.
