Glazed ham recipe well cooked
It's nice to display a ham on your holiday table
This recipe is really nice for special occasions such as Christmas day. It feels special to present meat like this on the table for the family. Be sure that you have many people to serve the meat to or consider freezing leftovers. There are various examples for what you can do with ham leftovers such as cooking ham fetuccine or making ham sandwiches.
Brown sugar, honey and butter are all good for using as a glaze on your ham. A combination of the three works well. It is what I use.
Cooking ham for a 1/2 hour per pound of meat will make it very well done
Personally, I like to cook a very well done ham that still remains moist and tender. As a general rule, cooking for 1/2 hour per pound of meat is good. A 6 pound ham would need to cook for 3 hours. That is at 350 degrees in a preheated oven. I use a cured bone in ham.

Very well done ham
Traditionally, cloves are used to top a ham. You can easily add this item to your grocery list and pick it up at the supermarket when you are planning to cook the ham. If it is a spice that you frequently keep on hand in your pantry anyway, that's good too.
When I realized that I had no cloves I did not run out to the store however. I had too much cooking of various dishes to do that day ( Christmas of last year) so I simply sprinkled some parsley on top.
Oh, well. Nevertheless, the ham was still a hit and very delicious.
