Guinness Brown Sugar Glazed Ham with Roasted Vegetables 

Guinness & Brown Sugar Glazed Ham 

1 X 8 – 10 pound bone-in fully cooked ham, resting at room temperature for 1 – 2 hours

⅓ cup + ½ cup Guinness Draught 

½ cup butter 

1 cup brown sugar 

¼ cup honey 

¼ cup maple syrup 

Zest of 1 lemon 

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon 

¼ teaspoon allspice 

4 garlic cloves, minced

Sea salt and cracked black pepper 

  1. Preheat an oven to 300 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminium foil. 
  2. Using a sharp knife, score a 1-inch-wide and ¼ inch deep diamond pattern over the entire ham. Transfer the ham to the baking sheet and pour 1/3 cup of Guinness Draught into the base of the baking sheet. This will steam and soak into the ham as it cooks. Cover the ham with two pieces of foil or parchment paper, and transfer to the preheated oven. Bake for 30 minutes.
  1. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-heat. When melted, add the brown sugar, honey, maple, lemon zest, mustard, cinnamon, allspice, and garlic, then season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and reduced, 6 – 8 minutes. Set aside. 
  2. After 30 minutes, remove the ham from the oven and increase the oven temperature to 425°F. Discard the foil and pour about 1/3 of the glaze all over the ham, brushing in between the cuts to cover every nook & cranny. Return to the oven and bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes. 
  3. Remove the ham from the oven, brush with another third of the glaze, spoon over some of the pan juices, and repeat again after 15 minutes more minutes of baking until a dark golden-brown crust has formed, (about 30 minutes total). You’re looking for crispy, golden brown perfection. 
  4. Let the ham rest for 20 – 30 minutes before carving. Serve with your favorite seasonal roasted vegetables. Delicious!!
