Nobody makes ham quite like the famous 'Honey Baked Ham' but this one comes close and is certainly more affordable. Here is my version of that famous and well loved ham. Plan about 1/2 pound of ham per person.

Ingredients
Servings: ham

Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 300° Place oven rack in the lowest position.
  2. Place the cooking bag in a large roasting pan. Remove all packaging from the ham, including the plastic disc covering the bone and place ham face down in the cooking bag and pour the ginger ale over the top. Seal bag with the tie provided with the bag. Bake at 300° for about 50 minutes. (about 10 minutes per pound)
  3. While the ham is baking prepare the honey glaze.
For the Honey Glaze
  1. Combine dark corn syrup, butter and honey in a heavy bottomed sauce pan. Using medium heat, bring to a boil while constantly stirring. Reduce heat to maintain a very gentle boil for 15 minutes. Continue stirring during this phase.
  2. Remove glaze from heat and place in a heat proof bowl. Set bowl over a pan with an inch or two of simmering water. (Double Boiler) The bottom of the heat proof boil should be ABOVE the simmering water - not in it. Place pan over low heat to keep the glaze from hardening.
  3. Remove ham from oven and increase oven temperature to 350° Carefully remove ham from cooking bag and place in roasting pan, face side down. Brush the ham with the honey glaze until well coated. Return ham to oven for 10 minutes.
  4. Keep honey glaze over the simmering water. Open the oven door and brush with glaze every 10 minutes. About three more times.
  5. Remove ham from oven. Turn the oven to Broiler setting.* Give the ham one more good coating of honey glaze. Return ham to oven to candy the honey coating. about 5 minutes. Watch carefully - the coating should be golden brown and candied, not burnt. The candied coating will harden as it cools.
  6. Allow the ham to stand for 20 minutes before carving.
Recipe Notes

* Rather than using the broiler to finish the ham, a propane torch (like the one used to melt the sugar on top of creme brulee) can be used.

Note - Reynolds recommends using a large cooking bag for roasts under 8 pounds.  "Do not use Turkey Size roasting bags for roasts under 8 pounds.  Reynolds Kitchens
