Sugar-Glazed Ham

This old-fashioned ham glaze gives a pretty golden brown coating. The mustard and vinegar complement the brown sugar which adds a tangy flavor to this glazed ham recipe.


1 fully cooked bone-in ham (5 to 7 pounds)
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1 to 2 tablespoons cider vinegar


  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Using a sharp knife, score surface of ham with 1/4-in.-deep cuts in a diamond pattern. Cover and bake until a thermometer reads 130°, 1-1/2 to 2 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, mustard and enough vinegar to make a thick paste. Remove ham from oven. Spread sugar mixture over ham. Bake, uncovered, until a thermometer reads 140°, 15-30 minutes longer.
