Sprinkle with cheese. Yields five servings.City Ham Recipeby Rachel Mercurio Cook’s note: This recipe made me go from liking ham to LOVING ham.1 city-style* (brined) ham, hock-end1/4 cup brown mustard2 cups dark brown sugar1 ounce bourbon (poured into a spray bottle)2 cups crushed ginger snap cookiesPreheat oven to 250 degrees. Remove ham from bag, rinse and drain thoroughly. Place ham cut side down, in a roasting pan. Score the ham from bottom to top, spiraling clockwise as you cut. (If you’re using a paring knife, be careful to only cut through the skin and first few layers of fat). Rotate the ham after each cut so that the scores are no more than 2-inches across. Once you’ve made it all the way around, move the knife to the other hand and repeat, spiraling counterclockwise. The aim is to create a diamond pattern all over the ham. Tent the ham with heavy-duty foil, insert a thermometer, and cook for 3-4 hours or until the internal temperature at the deepest part of the meat registers 130 degrees. Remove and use tongs to pull away the diamonds of skin and any sheets of fat that come off with them.Heat oven to 350 degrees. Dab ham dry with paper towels and brush on a liberal coat of mustard, using either a basting brush. Sprinkle on brown sugar, packing loosely until the ham is coated. Spray this layer lightly with bourbon and loosely pack on as much of the crushed cookies as you can. Insert the thermometer (don’t use the old hole) and return to the oven (uncovered). Cook until interior temperature reaches 140 degrees, approximately 1 hour. Let the roast rest for half an hour before carving.*A city ham is basically any brined ham that’s packed in a plastic bag, refrigerated and marked “ready to cook,” “partially cooked,” or “ready to serve.” Better city hams are also labeled “ham in natural juices.”
