Score your ham with a knife and glaze it before cooking to create crispy skin and a more complex flavor! This works for both prepared and fresh hams! Follow the steps below to make a Mouthwatering Ham!
Step # 1. Make parallel cuts across the ham, about a 1/4 inch deep, 1 inch apart, then repeat in the opposite direction to create a checkered pattern.
Step # 2. You can insert a clove or additional seasoning in the cuts to give the ham an extra shot of flavor.
Step # 3. Use a pastry brush to apply glaze to the ham, allowing it to get into the cuts. Reapply the glaze a few times while the ham is in the oven.
