Champagne Baked Ham

Champagne, brown sugar and honey combine to make a beautiful glossy glaze. The ham slices turn out tender and juicy every time.

Yield

18 servings

Ingredients

1 boneless fully cooked ham (9 pounds)
1 1/2 cups Champagne
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
4 1/2 teaspoons honey
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 teaspoon ground mustard

Directions

Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C). Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Score the surface of the ham, making diamond shapes 1/2 in. deep. Bake, uncovered, for 1 1/2 hours.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil; cook until glaze is reduced by half. Remove from the heat.

Baste ham with glaze; bake 30 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 140°F (60°C), basting twice with glaze. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with remaining glaze.
