This is a great-tasting baked ham with a brown sugar-sweetened beer glaze.


  • Ham:
  • 1 ham (fully cooked, about 3 to 4 pounds)
  • 1 cup beer
  • Beer Glaze:
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Steps to Make It

  1. Place ham in an uncovered roasting pan. Pour 1 cup of beer over the ham; bake at 350 F for 1 hour.

  2. Baste with the pan drippings every 15 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, combine ingredients in a bowl for the beer glaze, using enough beer to make a smooth, paste-like glaze.

  4. Remove ham from oven and score fat diagonally in a criss-cross pattern.

  5. Stud with whole cloves and spread with the beer glaze.

  6. Roast for 30 to 45 minutes longer, or until well glazed and cooked through.

The internal temperature of a fully cooked ham should be about 140 F.
