If you dig pig on pork, this succulent heavenly ham will be a new Christmas tradition.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Pound Bacon, sliced

  • 1 Large Ham, Bone-In

  • As Needed whole cloves

  • 1 1/2 Cup pineapple juice

  • 2 Cup ginger beer

  • 1/4 Cup brown sugar

  • 2 Tablespoon mustard

Steps

  • 1

    Create a bacon weave on parchment paper. Refer to our Youtube video for instructions.

    Put the ham in a disposable roasting pan. Gently transfer the bacon weave to the top of the ham and stud the bacon with the cloves (if desired).
  • 3

    Pour 1 cup of pineapple juice and 1 cup of ginger beer/ale into the bottom of the roasting pan.

    Meanwhile mix together the glaze. Combine the remaining 1/2 cup of pineapple juice, 1 cup ginger beer/ale, brown sugar and mustard in a saucepan on the stovetop. Cook until it thickens slightly, then brush on the ham.
