Cider-braised Ham with Ginger-lime Glaze


Ginger jam in the glaze gives this ham a spicy-sweet kick. Braising makes the meat incredibly juicy and succulent, though you can also roast it (see variation) if you prefer a firmer, meatier texture.

What you will need

1 cup ginger jam, preserves, or marmalade

1 Tbs. soy sauce

1 Tbs. finely grated lime zest

1 8- to 10-lb. bone-in butt-end half city ham

6 cups apple cider

1 Tbs. allspice berries

1 Tbs. whole cloves

1 4-inch cinnamon stick
