Yields: 8 servings
Total Time: 2 hours 30 mins

fully cooked bone-in ham (about 7 lb. total; preferably shank end)

2 tsp.

black peppercorns 

1/2 c.


1/2 c.

whole-grain mustard

1/4 c.

Dijon mustard

1/4 c.

balsamic vinegar

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Place ham, cut side down, on rack set in roasting pan; add 1/4 cup water to pan. Score ham on all sides in diamond pattern, cutting only 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep. Cover ham and pan tightly with foil and bake 11/2 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, using heavy pan, crush peppercorns; place in bowl. Add honey, mustards, and vinegar and whisk to combine. Transfer 1/2 cup glaze to small bowl and reserve for serving.
  3. Brush one-third of glaze (about 1/3 cup) over ham and bake, uncovered, 15 minutes; rotate ham in oven and repeat with another 1/3 cup glaze and bake another 15 minutes. Brush remaining 1/3 cup glaze over ham and bake until ham is heated through and internal temperature registers 140°F, 15 to 20 minutes more. Slice and serve with remaining glaze.
