October 3, 2017


Lucero presents our simply spectacular clove studded ham. Balsamic
vinegar in the glaze takes a classic to a new level.






Position rack in lower third of oven

Preheat oven to 325 d/F.


To make glaze:


1-  Combine balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, mustard, and black

pepper in a small bowl. Place ham on a large cutting board with

the fat side facing up. Score ham in a diamond pattern, cut ½ inch



2-  Poke in cloves, pointed end first, at the intersections of every

diamond. Note: the ham can be scored and studded ahead of

time refrigerated  until ready to use.


3-  Remove ham from refrigerator one hour before baking. Place

ham, studded side up , on a rack in a roasting pan.


4-  Bake uncovered in oven for 15 minutes per pound or  until the

internal temperature reaches 140 degrees.


Now apply the glaze....


5-  Halfway through the roasting period pull ham from oven and

brush with 1/3 of the glaze.  Return to oven and continue to bake,

basting with remaining glaze two more  times at 20 min. intervals.


When ham is done remove from oven and drape lightly with foil.

Let rest a minimum of 10 minutes before slicing.
