Just before Easter, precooked hams where on sale. Of course we bought one and cooked it for Easter and had five of our friends over to share it with us. The ham turned out very good. This is how we cooked it:.
Bring it to room temperature
Cut off excess fat and scored it
Preheated oven to 325 degrees
Cover the ham with foil and put about a cup of water in the bottom of the pan
Cooked ours for 2 1/2 hours adding more water as needed or coke if you choose. Figure 15/20 minutes per pound
1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of bourbon
Honey to sweeten it, just a little at a time to take the edge off the bourbon
Simmer for 20 minutes then let cool [be careful the bourbon may flare up]
Remove foil and brush with glaze every 5 to 10 minutes for another half hour
Let cool and carve – enjoy
If you use this recipe let me know if you liked it and how it turned out?
