How to Make an Amazing Ham

by Suzy Homemaker

A slow cooked, fall off the bone piece of heaven. (Adapted from a recipe found on


  • 1 Cup Loosely Packed Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Spicy Brown Mustard
  • ΒΌ Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • 3 Tablespoons White Vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons Water
  • 3 Tablespoons Dry Sherry
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Gather your supplies. Whisk the vinegar, water, flour, sugar, cinnamon, mustard, and sherry.

    Step 2

    Line a baking dish with foil. I used a 9x9 but it really depends on the size of your ham. Put the ham, fat side up, in the pan.

    Step 3

    Pour the liquid mixture over the ham. It will pool in the bottom. That's ok.

    Step 4

    Cover the top with foil so that it is sealed around the edges. It will dry out if not sealed. You can start with a cold oven. Cook on 250 for about 9 to 10 hours. A little longer wont hurt it

    Step 5

    What you get is an amazingly moist, fall off the bone, ham. (Sorry that it looks like scavengers have devoured most of it. I forgot to take a pic before lunch :) ) I will never fix ham any other way.
