Honey dijon Glazed Ham
This delightful recipe combines brown sugar, Greenridge's Spicy Brown Mustard, and a touch of cola to create a glaze that transforms your fully cooked Greenridge's Oven Roasted Ham Off The Bone into a tender and succulent masterpiece. The glaze, with its perfect balance of sweetness and tanginess, caramelizes beautifully as it bakes, creating an enticing crust that gives way to juicy and flavorful slices of ham. Prepare to indulge in a harmonious blend of tastes that will make your Easter feast unforgettable.
Begin by letting the fully cooked Greenridge Farm's Caminito Ham sit at room temperature for 45 minutes to 1 hour. This allows the ham to warm up slightly, ensuring even cooking throughout.
Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C) while you prepare the ham. Take a large roasting pan and generously line it with tin foil. This will make cleanup easier later on. Place an oven-safe rack over the foiled pan, ensuring it is sturdy and can hold the weight of the ham.
Take the fully cooked ham and score the surface in a diamond pattern using a sharp knife. This not only enhances the presentation but also allows the glaze to penetrate and flavor the meat. Place the scored ham on the prepared rack in the roasting pan.
In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, Greenridge Farm's Spicy Brown Mustard, and cola. Heat the mixture over medium heat until it becomes bubbly, stirring occasionally. Continue cooking for about 15 minutes, allowing the glaze to reduce and slightly thicken. This process brings out the flavors and creates a glossy texture.
Once the glaze is ready, transfer it to a glass dish. This helps to prevent further cooking and thickening of the glaze. Set it aside for now.
Place the ham in the preheated oven and bake for 1 hour. The gentle heat allows the ham to warm through while preserving its juicy texture.
After 1 hour of baking time, carefully remove the ham from the oven. Generously brush the prepared glaze all over the surface of the ham, ensuring it is evenly coated. This step adds a delightful sweetness and tanginess to the ham's flavor profile.
Tent the glazed ham with foil to prevent the glaze from burning. Return the ham to the oven and continue baking for an additional 20 minutes.
Repeat the glazing process in 20-minute intervals until the ham reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C). Glazing the ham at regular intervals allows the flavors to build and creates a beautiful caramelized exterior.
Throughout the glazing process, be sure to keep the foil on the ham, removing it only for the final round of glazing. This helps to protect the skin from burning while maintaining a juicy and tender interior.
Once the ham reaches the desired temperature, carefully remove it from the oven and allow it to rest covered for 15-20 minutes. This resting period allows the juices to redistribute, resulting in a moist and flavorful ham.
