We decided to make a ham for a today's Super Bowl get together at my son's house. I had an 11lb. shank, bone-in Cook's ham. I figured it would take a good 5 hours to cook, so I got up early to make sure it would be finished in time to get to my son's house before the game began. After reviewing a few recipes. I decided to use an "oven bag" ("turkey sized"). I had never used these, but know people that have...for beef roasts & turkey, but never ham. I chose this recipe because, like the author, I had most of the ingredients. I made only a couple variations. I had 'light' brown sugar, my orange wasn't in the best of shape, so I forewent the zest. Finally I adjusted the cloves to 1/8 tsp. for personal tastes. For the pineapple juice, I opened a can of pineapple, which I buy the 'light' or the 'in it's own juice' versions, so it was a great stand-in. Once the ingredients were all combined & the ham was placed in the bag, I poured the glaze over every inch of the ham. I twisted the end of the bag as tight as I could & used the zip tie included. I did not make the slits in the top of the bag as directed on the box (mostly because I was half asleep, lol) VERY EASY PREP-about 10 mins :) Once in the oven, it took only 2.5 hours! Exactly what the box that the bag came in stated...haha! Again, it is probably best, especially w/ a new recipe & method, to be wide awake :) It was bulging w/ moisture, & juices ran as soon as the knife touched it. Sliced thin,succulent & tasty! GO Saints!
