Delicious Berkshire Ham

Prep Time:

3 hours and 25 minutes (active: 15 minutes)


8 to 10 minutes, depending on weight


  • 10 to 12-pound bone-in Berkshire smoked ham
  • 1- 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup raw organic honey
  •  You can also add ¼ tsp. clove powder to your brown sugar
  • You can also add ¼ cup pineapple juice to level out the flavors


  • Adjust the oven racks to accommodate a large roasting pan. Fit the pan with a shallow roasting rack. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Unwrap the ham and rinse it under cold water.
  • Place it on the rack in the roasting pan. Cover with foil and bake 1 hour 40 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the brown sugar and honey, clove and pineapple juice in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until the mixture is smooth, and the sugar has dissolved.
  • Pour the brown sugar glaze over the ham and continue roasting for an additional 1 hour 40 minutes more, basting at least twice with the drippings in the roaster.
  • Let the ham stand 15 minutes before slicing to allow the juices to set. (You can make the ham up to 2 hours ahead; tent with foil and serve at room temperature.)

Note: To adjust the total roasting time for a smaller or larger ham, calculate 20 minutes per pound. Check for doneness by inserting a probe (or thermometer) into a meaty spot (not into fat or touching the bone). It should register 155°F.
