- 9 lbs fully cooked bone-in spiral-cut ham
- 1/2 cup apple juice
- 3 tablespoons grainy mustard
- 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
Place ham, flat side down, on rack in roasting pan; pour in 1 cup water. Cover pan tightly with foil; roast in 325ºF (160°C) oven until meat thermometer registers 130ºF (55ºC), about 2-1/2 hours.
Meanwhile, in small saucepan, bring apple juice, 1/2 cup water, mustard, sugar and vinegar to boil; boil until reduced to 3/4 cup, about 7 minutes. Brush half over ham.
Bake, covered and brushing with remaining glaze halfway through, until meat thermometer registers 140ºF (60ºC), about 1 hour. Transfer to cutting board and tent with foil; let stand for 20 minutes before carving.
