Chef John's Home-Cured Holiday Ham
In this video, Chef John shows you how to prepare a juicy, flavorful baked ham. You'll first learn how to brine the ham in a combination of water, sugar, pickling spice, and pink salt. Be sure to allow plenty of time for this step, as it adds lots of flavor and tenderizes the meat. Once brined, bake the ham low and slow. Then turn up the oven temperature to crisp up the skin. Enjoy the ham as is, or brush it with maple mustard glaze. Get Chef John’s recipe for Home-Cured Holiday Ham.
