Baked Smoked Ham
With Glaze Recipe

  • 1 whole smoked ham that weighs (l2 pounds or less) or 1 whole smoked ham that weighs (over 12 pounds)

  • 1 glaze recipe

If the Baked Smoked Ham has been refrigerated, remove it from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature before applying the glaze.

When ready to cook, place the uncooked ham in a shallow pan.

With a sharp knife, score the top of the ham into square or diamond shapes.

Place a whole clove each square or diamond before adding the Ham Glaze.

Do not cover the ham nor add water to the ham.

For baking allow 15 minutes per pound for hams, 12 pounds or over; allow 18 minutes per pound for hams under 12 pounds; allow 22 minutes per pound for half hams; or bake to an internal temperature of 145F. making sure the thermometer does not touch the ham bone. 

Bake uncovered at 325F. for the remaining 45 minutes.

Boil for 2 minutes, then remove the saucepan  from the stove.

When the Honey Glaze stops bubbling, lightly, brush the glaze on the ham.

Keep brushing the gaze on the ham occasionally, until a thermomotor inserted into the center of the ham, without touching the bone, registers 140F. 

Meanwhile, prepare the accompanying Mustard Sauce Recipe.

History Of Ham

Hogs and pigs are not native to America as many people think.

Christopher Columbus brought eight pigs with him when he came to America on his second voyage.

Hernando de Soto's 13 pigs became the breeding stock for the United States' pork industry when he landed on the coast of Florida in 1539.

Within just a few years, his inventory of hogs had grown to 700. 

When I was growing up in the country in the 1949s and early 1950s, almost every family I knew raised hogs and chickens for food.

Almost all these families had smokehouses they cured their meat in.

They strung the meat up on rafters in their smokehouses and the meat help to feed their families all winter.

No store bought ham meat back then... there was none!
