"A never-fail recipe that is a family favorite. Frequent basting during the cooking time is key to a delicious result. We can't help taking several tester bites while waiting for dinner to be ready. Makes great leftovers for sandwiches. A Maritime tradition with home-baked beans and bakery fresh bread. Also fantastic with potato scallop and buttered green beans."

Hi there! I am the self professed foodie who submitted this recipe, and there is an error in the brown sugar amount. It should read 2 TBSP, and not 1/2tsp. Not sure why that happened, but happy people have been enjoying our family favourite ham! Just made it for our Easter dinner, and everyone left the table very content! Thanks for the wonderful reviews!
I will try this again as the results may have been my fault. My ham came out very tasty, but not juicy. It was dry, almost like a country ham. But, I did not read where I was suppose to continue to baste it after covering it with foil. And I did cook the ham face up as opposed to face down like the package directions on my ham stated. Unfortunately, a lot of it was wasted and thrown out. Was even too dry for sandwiches. I had a 10lb ham, so maybe I overcooked it....
Worth the try and will update after making again. Thanks!
I just made this and it is so good! Even my 6 year old who puts ketchup on everything said it was good and didn't put any on hers!!
this was great!
Loved it! I used a can and a half of beer, almost 1/3 cup dijon and a large handful of brown sugar for an 8.5 pound ham and turned out great! Plenty of juice in the pan to keep it moist. I cooked mine a bit longer, but otherwise, great simple recipe to start with!
Reduced the amount of sauce to about 1/4 of the total amount and use over a large ham steak. WOW!! what an improvement
Thank you for this recipe, my family loved this! I am making it for the 2nd time today. Makes great sandwiches too.
This was my first ham and it was the best ham I've ever had. Absolutely delicious!
