Serves: 10 - 20 people

Prep & Cook time: 1.5 - 2 hrs


1 Full Ham
1/2 cu Brown Sugar
2.5 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
1.5 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard


1. Place the ham on a large cutting board and score the ham with cuts, 1cm deep in a diamond pattern. This process allows the glaze to penetrate deeper into the ham.

2. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees. Line a large roasting pan or a heavy rimmed baking sheet with foil and place the ham cut side down in the pan. Roast 45-50 minutes. While the ham begins roasting, combine the sugar, vinegar and mustard in a small cup or bowl. Set aside next to the stove.

3. Remove the ham from the oven and baste generously with the glaze, using about 1/4 of the glaze. Continue to roast the ham until it is deep brown and glazed, brushing the ham with more glaze every 10 minutes or so.

4. Start by roasting the ham for 50 minutes, then baste it, 10 minutes more, baste again, 10 minutes more, baste it generously with all remaining glaze one last time and finished roasting it for 5 more minutes. An average of 15 minutes cooking time per kilo of ham should be just right.

5. Transfer the ham to a large platter and let rest 10-15 minutes prior to slicing. Enjoy!
