Opa's Traditional Easter Ham with a Sweet Mustard Glaze Recipe
OPA'S PEPPERED BONE-IN SPIRAL SLICED HALF HAM 5-7 LBS
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
3 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup Fredericksburg Farms German Stone Ground Mustard
1 can Dr. Pepper
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Preheat the oven to 325F.
Remove the Ham from the refrigerator 1 hour before heating. Remove the Ham from plastic packaging and place in a shallow roasting pan, on a wire rack, adding 1/3 cup of water, and cover with a foil tent.
Place the Ham in the oven covered for 30 minutes.
In a saucepan heat the cloves, brown sugar, mustard, Dr. Pepper, and apple cider vinegar over medium-high heat until bubbly. Reduce heat and continue cooking until reduced to a thick syrup.
After 30 minutes, remove the foil and brush the entire Ham with the glaze. Return the Ham to the oven uncovered and repeat this process every 15 minutes until the Ham is fully heated. Times will vary based on the size and weight of the ham.
Once fully heated, remove from the oven and let it rest for 15 minutes before serving
