Easter Ham

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?
