What Are Some Whole Bone-in Ham Recipes?

Barbecue ham and classic glazed ham are two whole bone-in ham recipes. The barbecue ham recipe calls for slow-cooking the ham, whereas the classic glazed ham is baked.

To make barbecue ham, place a 7-pound ham in a slow cooker. Mix 1/3 cup of barbecue sauce with 1/3 cup of honey and 1/3 cup of brown sugar until smooth. Stir in 14 ounces of canned pineapple tidbits, and pour the mixture over the ham. Cover, and cook on low for four hours, turning after two hours.

Transfer the ham to a platter, and reserve the sauce. Whisk 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of water until smooth, and add to the reserved sauce. Cook for five minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve the ham with the sauce.

To make classic glazed ham, trim the skin off of a 9- to 10-pound bone-in smoked ham. Score through the fat, and insert 2 tablespoons of whole cloves into the ham. Place the ham in a roasting pan, and pour 1/4 inch water into the bottom of the pan. Baked at 325 degrees F for two hours and 30 minutes.

Make the glaze by mixing 1 cup of brown sugar, 3/4 cup of Dijon mustard and the zest and juice of 1 orange. Increase the temperature to 425 degrees F, and brush the ham with the glaze. Add more water to the pan if needed. Bake for 45 minutes, basting every 10 minutes with the remaining glaze.
