Yield:
8 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • One 7 to 8-pound smoked fresh ham
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup apple jelly
  • 1/4 cup spicy brown mustard
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Place the ham in a roasting pan fat-side up. Score the fat with a crisscross pattern. Cook the ham for about 1 hour to allow the scored fat to open up.

In the meantime, in a small saucepan over medium heat, stir together the brown sugar, apple jelly, mustard, vinegar, ginger and garlic along with 2 tablespoons water. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 2 minutes until it has a smooth syrupy consistency.

Remove the ham from the oven. Generously brush the ham with half of the glaze. Place back in the oven and bake an additional 1 hour and 30 minutes, basting with the remaining glaze every 20 minutes. If the ham starts to get too brown, cover with foil. Remove from the oven, cover and allow the ham to rest for 30 minutes before slicing and serving.

    I used 3 containers of applesauce that my daughter uses for her lunch, you know, those 4 oz. containers; instead of apple jelly. I added one tablespoon of Jack Daniels because we are Tennessee folk. I used powdered ginger, about 1 teaspoon. I also added 4 small halo oranges, their about the size of mandarins. Out of the 4 oranges, I just squeezed 2 of them in my hand over the brown sugar and then I let the other 2 oranges cook with the glaze. 
    Fabulous. Thanks so much for this.
    Very easy and packed with flavor, I did this recipe and I was very pleased with then outcome
    The best ham ever! I did make a couple of changes, I didn't have apple jelly on hand so I used applesauce and I substituted honey mustard for dark mustard.
    I have made this several times...Turns out wonderful each time...You won't be disapointed in this one...
    This was a hit with my family. This is a keeper!!
    My family loved this recipe. I used apricot jam instead of apple preserves and it was great. Will definately make this again.
     
    I used this recipe for Thanksgiving this year and the ham turned out GREAT! I followed the directions to the letter. The marinade was easy and I didn't even have to let the ham sit overnight like I do every other year. I got so much positive feedback from family and friends that came over to eat it, they even came over for leftovers!! Will be using it again next year!
