Super Easy and delicious ham.
I just buy the cheapest ham. This time it was a shank for 98¢ a pound from Aldi.
I learned that you are supposed to cut off the skin. I was shocked. I had Tiffany takes some pictures while I prepped one of the hams for the Holiday Bash last Friday. Place it with the flat side down.
You only want to cut the thick hide, not the thin bit. Trust me, you should be able to know the difference.
Just keep pulling the thick skin back and cutting the fat close to the skin.
Then score it diagonally by cutting lines into the ham, first one direction, and then the other.
At this point you can put a glaze on it if you like. The last time I made them, I didn’t even remember that I did this before and it was still very good.
For those on a low carb, keto, or THM eating plan, you can substitute Sukrin Gold for brown sugar, Sukrin Fiber syrup gold for maple syrup or the clear for honey in the ‘recipes’ here. There are some directions for prepping the ham there as well. Here is another website with a glaze and some directions.
I used the 2/3 cup maple syrup and 1 tbsp mustard last time I used a glaze but next time I will use 2/3 cup Sukrin Fiber syrup gold with the mustard. I don’t really know what good the mustard is but I used it last time and it was good.
Bake 350º for 1 to 1 1/2 hours for a 10-12 pound ham.
Unfortunately, I did not get a picture of the cooked ham. I was a bit busy getting the party started. So, maybe the next time I make one for us I’ll get some pictures of the final product.
Until next time, God bless,
