    1. After the ham has baked for 2 1/2 hours brush it with some of the bourbon mixture. Continue roasting and brushing with the glaze every 15 minutes until the ham is glossy and an instant read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the ham (without touching the bone) registers 140°F, about 1-1 1/2 hours longer. Remove from the oven and let rest 20-30 minutes before slicing. Serve with chutney.

Chutney

  • For the chutney, heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium. Add the onion and ginger; cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, 3-4 minutes. Stir in the curry powder, cinnamon and black pepper; cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add the raisins and cranberries and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, about 3-4 minutes. Pour in the cider and vinegar, bring to a boil and coo until the fruit is slightly plumped, about 5 minutes. Stir in the sugar and cook until the liquid in the skillet becomes syrupy, about 8-10 minutes. Remove from the hat and cool 10 minutes. Stir in the jelly, mustard and salt. Cool and refrigerate, if desired, until ready to serve.
