TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 2 hours + standing
MAKES: 16 servings
1 fully cooked bone-in ham (8 to 10 pounds)
2-1/4 cups ginger ale
1 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons honey
4-1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
4 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1-1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
Preheat oven to 325°. 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, 1-1/2 hours.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine ginger ale, brown sugar, honey and vinegar. Bring to a boil; cook until glaze is reduced by half, about 15 minutes. Reduce heat. Stir in remaining ingredients; cook 5 minutes.
Remove from the heat. Set aside 1 cup for sauce.
Baste ham with some of the remaining glaze. Bake 30 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 140°, basting twice with additional glaze. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with reserved sauce. Yield: 16 servings.
