Recipe By Savory Spice Test Kitchen

A simple, sweet spice rub is all you need to turn a ham into a holiday meal. Simply rub, roast, and baste to coat the ham with the flavors of brown sugar, honey, pepper, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves featured in our favorite ham rub.

Serving Suggestions

When you pull ham out of the oven to rub in the spice, add several halved apples and/or pears to the bottom of the roasting pan with the ham and sprinkle them with some of the spice rub. Baste the fruit as you baste the ham. For a festive addition, try pressing pecan halves to the top and sides of the ham (using toothpicks to secure) when you rub in on the spice. If you add pecans, omit turning the ham over, but continue with basting instructions.

Recipe Notes

In general, hams are heated in the oven at 325 degrees. Cooked and uncooked hams need 15 to 30 min. of cooking time per pound. Cooked hams should have a 135 degree internal temperature before being removed from the oven and a 140 degree internal finished temperature after resting. Uncooked hams should have a 155 to 160 degree internal temperature before being removed from the oven and a 160 to 170 degree internal finished temperature after resting.

Ingredients

1 bone-in butt or shank ham

Directions

Step 1: Parcook ham

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Set ham cut-side down in roasting pan and cover loosely with foil. Roast for 20 min. per pound until ham is about 45 min. from done.

Step 2: Season ham

Remove ham from oven, allow to cool slightly, then rub in half of seasoning of choice, covering the top and sides as evenly as possible. Return ham to oven for 15 min., then remove from oven again and allow it to cool slightly. Turn ham over and rub it with remaining seasoning of choice.

Step 3: Baste and carve

Return ham to oven for 30 more min., basting every 10 min. with the juices in the roasting pan. When internal temperature of ham is at least 145 degrees, remove from oven and rest for 10 to 15 min. Carve ham and serve.
