Mar. 13 - Beer Glazed Ham

Our wonderful friends, Joy and Kortney, came over for dinner last night, so I made the 3 lb. ham I had bought during my last grocery trip (I knew it would easily feed 5 of us without having too much left over). I have had this recipe for a beer glaze for what seems like forever, but never used it...what better time to try than now?! It was so simple and tasted great! J&K brought over some delicious au gratin potatoes and asparagus with prosciutto to complement the ham. The meal was almost as good as the company :)

Beer Glazed Ham
1 boneless fully cooked ham (3 lbs.)
1 can beer
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 T balsamic vinegar
2 tsp ground mustard

  1. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Score the surface of the ham, making diamond shapes ½ inch deep. 
  2. Set aside 2 T beer. Pour remaining beer over ham. 
  3. Bake, uncovered at 350 for 1 hour. 
  4. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, vinegar, mustard and reserved beer; spread over ham.
  5. Bake 40-45 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 140, basting occasionally.
