Full Recipe Details

  • Cuisine: Pork

  • Prep Time: 15 mins

  • Cooking Time: 2 hrs 50 mins

  • Total Time: 3 hrs 5 mins

  • 1 Cup water, or as needed

  • 16 Whole cloves, or more to taste

  • 1 (5.5 kg, 12 lbs.) Bone in ham

  • 1-1/3 Cups and 1 tablespoon firmly packed light brown sugar

  • 1/3 Cup honey

  • 2 Tablespoons and 2-1/4 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • 2 Tablespoons and 2-1/4 teaspoons rice vinegar

  • 2 Teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

  • 3/4 Teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1-1/2 Pinches cayenne pepper

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  • Pour water and cloves into the bottom of a roasting pan. Place a roasting rack into the pan over the water, anise, and cloves; place ham on rack. Cut 1/4-inch deep slashes 1/2-inch apart lengthwise and crosswise across the top of the entire ham.

  • Bake ham in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Whisk brown sugar, honey, mustard, vinegar, black pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and cayenne pepper together in a bowl until glaze has a thick, smooth consistency.

  • Brush glaze all over ham. Continue baking ham, brushing glaze on every 20 minutes, until glaze is deep golden and ham is heated through, about 2 hours 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C).

  • Use a kitchen torch to heat the glaze on the ham until it is crispy and caramelized, 2 to 5 minutes.


You can use any vinegar in place of rice vinegar, if desired.
