This is a mash up of two recipes with coffee added to give it a kick. It doesn't taste like coffee but I think it gives it a lift.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Place ham fat side-up on a rack in a roasting pan. Score ham fat in a crisscross design; season with sea salt.

  • Mix brown sugar, sorghum syrup, brown mustard, brandy, dry mustard, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger together in a bowl for the basting mixture. Brush 1/3 basting mixture on top of ham and stick cloves into fat. Pour coffee into bottom of roasting pan.

  • Cook ham in the preheated oven, brushing with remaining basting mixture every 30 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center reads 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), about 2 hours total.

Cook's Notes:

Vanilla extract can be substituted for the brandy, if desired.

Roasting pan can be lined with aluminum foil or parchment paper for easier clean-up.

Cool ham to room temperature before refrigerating, about 2 hours.
