Simple Baked Ham

Cooking Light JANUARY 2005

  • Yield: 26 servings (serving size: about 3 ounces)

Ingredients

  • 1 (8-pound) 33%-less-sodium smoked, fully cooked ham half
  • 2 teaspoons whole cloves
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 cups apple juice, divided
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Preparation

Place ham in a large Dutch oven or stockpot. Cover with water to 2 inches above ham; cover and refrigerate for 24 hours. Drain; rinse well with warm water. Drain.

Preheat oven to 325°.

Trim fat and rind from ham. Score outside of ham in a diamond pattern; stud with cloves. Place ham, skin side down, on the rack of a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Place rack in pan; pour 1 cup apple juice over ham. Cover ham loosely with foil. Bake at 325° for 2 1/2 hours, basting occasionally with remaining 1 cup apple juice.

Remove ham from oven (do not turn oven off); uncover ham. Combine sugar and mustard; brush over ham. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 30 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 140°. Place ham on a cutting board; cover and let stand 10 minutes before slicing.

Note:

Soaking the ham in water draws out some of the sodium so the ham won't taste too salty.
