Picking the Perfect Sized Ham

So now that you have your perfect holiday ham and you're a professional on all things ham-related, we are sharing a glaze recipe that will take your meal to the next level!

This recipe was shared by our salesman here at Stoltzfus Meats, George Clayton.

What you'll need for this ham glaze:

¾ cup chicken stock

1 cup brown sugar

¾ cup Dijon mustard

1 tsp ginger

1½ tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp cloves (ground or whole)

¾ cup pineapple juice

½ cup bourbon OR ½ can coke

canned pineapple rings

maraschino cherries

How to make the ham glaze:

Add all ingredients together in a medium sauce pan, except pineapple rings, cherries, and cloves (if whole). Cook at medium-low heat and bring to a boil. Once boiling, remove from heat.

Score ham in diamond shapes about 1½ inches deep. Place ham in a large roasting pan and pour half of the glaze mixture over top.

Cook, covered at 350 to 375°F for 15 minutes per pound. Baste ham throughout cooking with remaining glaze mixture, approximately every 30 minutes. During the last hour of cooking, uncover ham.
