Pomegranate Glazed Ham with Brown Sugar Crust
- Bring ham to close to room temperature. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
- In a bowl, stir together pomegranate molasses, ¾ cup brown sugar, warm water, cinnamon, and ginger. Place ham on a rack in a roasting pan. Brush outside of ham all over with about ¾ of the molasses mixture. Cover ham with a piece of parchment paper then foil and bake until heated through, about 45 minutes – 1 hour (an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the ham should reach about 120 degrees F).
- Remove ham from oven and discard parchment/foil; baste ham with pan drippings. Raise oven temperature to 425 degrees F.
- Brush ham with remaining molasses mixture then press remaining sugar all over the ham. Roast uncovered until sugar softens then forms a crust, about 15 minutes (just watch carefully to make sure the crust doesn’t burn). Let ham rest for a few minutes before serving.
Recipe tips: Garnish serving platter with fresh pomegranate and herbs for a festive holiday centerpiece. If using one of our whole uncut hams, slice gently using long strokes with a sharp serrated knife to avoid knocking off the sugar crust.
