Second only to turkey, a glazed ham is an iconic holiday centerpiece. This easy recipe yields a crunchy, sweet crust and juicy interior, so all you need to worry about is getting a good-quality ham.
What to buy: You can order a smoked, bone-in ham from your butcher or at the butcher counter of high-end grocery stores. There aren’t many ingredients here, so be sure to buy a good ham for the best results.
Game plan: Leaving just enough fat on the ham is important for the perfect crunchy crust–to–juicy meat ratio—too much fat and your caramelized crust becomes a flabby mess; too little and your ham has dry spots. So take care when trimming.
