Heritage Recipe

Baked Ham with Irish Dressing

Ingredients
One 4- to 5-pound joint of ham
Some onions, carrots, parsley, thyme, and peppercorns
Glaze
2 to 4 Tablespoons honey
2 to 4 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
Some Irish whiskey
Cloves
Irish Dressing
Equal quantities honey and whiskey, allowing 1 Tablespoon for each person
Glazed Vegetables
1 to 2 pounds carrots
Onions
Sugar
Butter
salt

If using an uncooked ham, soak it overnight in cold water. Carefully wrap in foil with the prepared vegetables, sealing all edges, and bake in oven at 325 degrees. Allow 25 minutes to the pound and 25 minutes over.

If using a precooked ham, start your preparations at this point.

With a sharp knife, score in diamonds in the top skin and cut away any excess fat. Place in a roasting tin and brush with honey. Mix brown sugar and mustard and moisten with a little whiskey and spread this over the ham. Stick with cloves. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for about 20 to 30 minutes. Serve with glazed carrots, glazed onions, small green peas, and Irish dressing in a sauce boat.

Irish Dressing: Mix honey and whiskey together and warm gently just before serving in a warm sauce boat.

Glazed Vegetables: Peel carrots and chop, or leave whole if small. Put in a pan with water to cover, with 1 teaspoon sugar, 1 ounce butter, and salt. Cover and cook steadily until soft, then remove lid and cook until all the water has evaporated, when a glaze will form. Cover onions with cold water and add salt, leaving to boil. Tip off water and add 1 ounce butter and a little sugar. Cook until golden brown.
