Oftentimes underplayed, ham truly is a wonderful meat to roast, bake or grill. Oh I know, almost all of us enjoy a good ham at the holidays, but it’s really great year ’round. Plain, basted or glazed, each has its own unique tastes and flavors. The ham roast comes from the center of the ham and is approximately 2-inches thick (much thicker than a ham steak) and is a good choice for a summer time meal.
1 – 3.5-4 lb.bone in ham roast, 2-inches thick
2 tbls. blackberry jam
2 tbls. balsamic vinegar
2 tbls. honey
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a small bowl, combine blackberry jam, balsamic vinegar and honey until well mixed; set aside.
Place ham roast in a large baking dish, sprayed with cooking spray.
Roast 10-15 minutes per pound or until ham reaches an internal temperature of 120 degrees (approx. 1 hour).
During the last 10-15 minutes of roasting, baste liberally with blackberry jam mixture. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before carving. Serve with additional sauce if desired.
