Step 1

Unwrap/remove all plastic from ham and place cut side down on a baking rack in a roasting pan.

Step 2

Lightly score any fatty areas with a knife in a diamond pattern.

Step 3

Wrap pan with foil and bake at 325F. for 20 minutes per pound, or about 3 hours for a ten pound ham.

Step 4

Meanwhile, stir glaze ingredients together in a small saute pan and bring to a boil; remove from heat; remove from heat and allow to cool. Glaze should be amber colored, have the consistency of honey and not be grainy at all.

Step 5

30 Minutes before the ham is done, remove from the oven and take off the foil.

Step 6

Use a carving knife to trim away any fat from the meat before brushing on the glaze.

Step 7

Brush half the glaze over the skin of the ham and return to oven without foil; bake 15 minutes.

Step 8

Then brush remaining glaze on ham and bake another 15-25 minutes or until glaze sets and begins to caramelize.

Step 9

Wait 15 minutes before carving.

Very tasty! We loved the flavor, especially that added zip from the sriracha sauce. A little different then others we have tried, and glad I tried it. The leftovers will be good to make sandwiches and pea soup!
