Baked Ham – Scottish Ale Glaze

sliced

There is a lot of room for variation in this recipe (boneless/bone in ham, glaze thickness, cooking method, glaze ingredients, beer style, etc), but I really liked how it turned out. You could use a variety of beers for this, but I really like the flavor the Scottish Ale contributes. It really is the perfect style for a ham glaze in my opinion. This will result in a fairly sweet, very flavorful glaze. Even my wife, who isn’t much of a fan of baked ham, loves it.

8 lbs Boneless Fully Cooked Ham

1 bottle Scottish 70/- (Jamil’s recipe from Brewing Classic Styles)

1 cup Brown Sugar

1 cup Honey

ingredients

Score the ham (cut diamond pattern about 1/2″ deep all over surface of ham):

Place ham in roasting pan and bake for half of total cook time.

Mix the glaze ingredients in a saute pan:

Reduce to taste (I only reduced about 10 minutes on very low heat, I wanted this to be a fairly thin glaze):

stir

Remove ham from oven:

baked

Pour glaze covering ham entirely:

poured

Bake ham for remaining time basting occasionally.  Remove from oven and let rest before slicing:

done

Serve with preferred sides and refrigerate the rest. Pour glaze into container – I like to take the slices that have been soaking in the glaze at the bottom when eating leftovers.

    That looks really tasty! I cook all the time, but rarely improvise with homebrew (I probably should). Great looking recipe.
