Easter Ham

Easter Ham

Ready in 2 hours

I made a 10 pounder for Easter Sunday 2004 on the boat. I served it as sandwiches with beans, and potato salad. The problem I incurred was that when I went to place it in the oven, it was too big! I had to cut a 1/2" slice off of the bottom before it would go in.

If you use one of the "spiral sliced" hams, follow the directions for cooking that comes with it. However I will still turn the heat up to 425 for the last 1/2 hour and baste it with a mixture of frozen orange juice concentrate and ground cloves. You should also be aware that I have never had a "spiral sliced" ham that wasn't dry. and I've been known to go to great extremes to find one that wasn't spiral sliced. Something about the fact that the cuts go so deep into the ham gets it to dry out.

"I normaly inject the orange juice mixture into my ham, although i also add a little cinnamon, ans ground cloves to my OJ, heat ir on top of rhe stove with brown sugar, ans inject it in a bone in ham, and cook it low and slow, all night. it will be moist and fall off the bone, first time i made it was for new years, a family get together at my house. it was so good, that i get asked to make it each year."

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
1 10-pound Ham, semi-boneless, shank
1 can Frozen Orange Juice Concentrate
1/2 cup Dark Brown Sugar
Whole Cloves; as needed

Original recipe makes 10

Servings  

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

2. Cut slices in the top of the ham on a diagonal, and press one whole clove into each square.

Mix up the orange juice and dark brown sugar

3. Bake in oven for 20 minutes per pound at 325 degrees. Baste every 1/2 hour or so, making sure you work fast to get the ham back into the oven quickly. You'll probably notice that the top may start to burn (caramelize), cover with a strip of tin foil. As the cooking process continues, you'll have to lightly cover the whole ham with a larger piece of tin foil
