1 boneless fully cooked ham (3 pounds)

1 can (12 ounces) beer (We recommend Leinenkugel’s winter explorer pack) With a traditional lauger, fruity, or something a little richer, you won’t go wrong.  The winter explorer pack includes: Pomegranate Shandy, Creamy Dark, Snowdrift Vanilla Porter, Northwoods Lager

1 cup packed brown sugar

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

2 teaspoons ground mustard



Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Score the surface of the ham, making diamond shapes 1/2 in. deep. Set aside 2 tablespoons beer. Pour remaining beer over the ham. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour.

In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, vinegar, mustard and reserved beer; spread over ham. Bake 40-45 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 140°, basting occasionally.

Yield: 8 servings.
