My mom's recipe. She glazes this ham in the microwave, but it can easily be done in the oven as well.

Directions

  1. Cut the ham in half lengthwise. Place into a large pot, and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 hour, replenishing water as needed. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, stir together the brown sugar, soy sauce and mustard in a small bowl. Set aside until the ham is done.
  3. Place the ham halves into a glass or ceramic baking dish with the cut sides facing up. Cover the ham with the brown sugar mixture. Cook in the microwave for 15 minutes. Slice and serve.

So, I boiled the ham, which made it really tender. I was surprised. But the sauce wasn't really my cup of tea. It was certainly edible, but it really tasted like the three ingredients did not meld in any way. And it reminded be of barbecue sauce. My husband seemed to like it, the kids ate it... it was okay.
