Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 325*F.
  • Combine ginger ale, cinnamon stick and whole cloves in roasting pan lined with a non-stick foil.
  • Squeeze citrus juices into pan and add the juiced fruit halves.
  • Place a roasting rack in the pan, then place the ham cut side down on the rack. Loosely tent with heavy duty foil 1-1/2 to 2 hours (about 15 minutes per pound).
  • Stir together glaze ingredients while ham roasts. When ham reaches 70* (about 1 hour) brush on glaze to coat surface. Continue roasting uncovered. Monitor temperature often, it's done when a thermometer inserted in the thickest part reads 110*. don't let it touch the bone. The temperature will read high.
  • Remove ham from the oven, tent and let rest about 15 minutes to let juices redistribute.
  • Place ham on carving board, cut side down, probe with a skewer to find out where and how the bone is positioned. Insert the skewer to the bottom and feel where bone ends.
  • Remove skewer and begin carving where it was, staying as close to the bone as possible.
  • Follow the curve!!! This boneless piece it the "presentation piece".
  • It yields the biggest whole slices.
  • Flip boneless portion around so the side you just cut is on the board. This way, you will carve against the grain for optimum tenderness.
  • Slice the meat, applying the pressure on the forward stroke. Now carve the bone-in section by first slicing off the one of the tow larger portions on either side of the bone.
  • Again trim close to the bone to remove as much of the meat as possible.
  • Remove portion on the other side of the bone, slice both portions against the grain.
  • Then carve off the piece behind the bone, Serve
  • ** If you do not follow these instructions the ham will not be tender and sort of tough! You must follow these instructions!!!!!**

    Made this Ham last night - my first time cooking a Ham- and it was delicious! I used cranberry gingerale and didnt have the whole cloves, so I sprinkled some nutmeg and allspice into the mix. I used a 4.5 lb ham and ended up cooking it for about 2.5 hours though.

    Sounds wonderful! I'm not a ham lover, so don't make it often. But I may have to start-this may be the recipe that make me love it. Thanks for the recipe.

    THanks for posting this. It sounds great! I've been looking for a good recipe for Ham because my Ham was kind of blah. This one has nice spices and cooking it under the foil sounds like a good idea.
