Yield: serves 15-20

Ingredients

  • 1 (7 to 12-lb.) half semi-boneless ham
  • 1 tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 tbsp. minced fresh ginger
  • 12 cup apricot preserves or jam
  • 12 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 14 cup apple cider vinegar

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350˚. Wrap ham in foil; transfer to a roasting pan. Bake until a thermometer inserted into the deepest part of ham reads 145˚, about 15-20 minutes per pound.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a 1-qt. saucepan over medium-high heat. Add ginger; cook until soft, 2 to 3 minutes. Add preserves, sugar, and vinegar; cook, stirring, until mixture becomes a syrupy glaze, about 10 minutes.
  3. Unwrap ham and brush with some glaze; raise oven to 500˚. Bake, brushing occasionally with remaining glaze, until browned, about 20 minutes more. Let rest for 20 minutes before carving.
