Previously I’ve written about the thousands of recipes our friend Rusty left behind. His life’s work was our Easter dinner. Like the book “Tuesdays with Morrie” I may start calling these posts “Meals with Rusty.”
This ham is unbelievably easy to make and bake. Carving it up is especially simple.
Serves…a lot with leftovers.
6-8 pound bone-in ham
1 tbsp ground mustard
1 tsp ground allspice
3/4 cup of orange marmalade
oven safe thermometer
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Score ham in a cross pattern. Combine mustard and allspice and smear all over the ham. Place in a shallow pan, insert thermometer at least 1 inch deep making sure not to make contact with a fat pocket or the bone under the surface.
Bake uncovered for 2-2/12 hours or until the internal temperature reads 140 degrees. During the last hour of baking smear the orange marmalade all over the ham. Baste occasionally. Carve.
