Sweet Bourbon Ham

My dad made this ham for Christmas about 15 years ago, and we loved it. I haven’t made a different ham since and haven’t loved one as much.

  • Remove skin and excess fat from ham, leaving a fat layer about 1/4-inch thick. Score ham in a diamond pattern with a sharp knife. Push cloves into the center of the scored diamond shapes. Place ham with cut side down into a roasting pan.

  • Bake ham in the preheated oven until an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat, not touching bone, reads 125 degrees F (52 degrees C), about 2 hours.

  • Combine brown sugar, whiskey, and black pepper in a bowl until glaze is smooth.

  • Raise oven temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Baste ham with 1/3 the whiskey glaze. Return to oven and bake until internal temperature reaches 140 degrees F (60 degrees C), basting ham with whiskey glaze every 10 minutes. Cover ham loosely with a tent of aluminum foil if ham browns too quickly.

  • Let ham rest for 15 minutes before carving.
