Ingredients and directions


  • 1 Carlton Farms Bone-In Ham
  • 2 cups Sweet Riesling
  • 2 tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • ¼ cup Shallots, minced
  • 2 tsp Fresh Thyme leaves
  • 1 cup Country-Style Mustard
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp black pepper


  1. Arrange rack in lowest level of oven; preheat to 300°. Place ham in a medium roasting pan.

  2. Boil 1 cup Riesling and 3 cups water in a saucepan for 5 minutes. Pour into bottom of roasting pan.

  3. Bake ham, basting with pan juices occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the ham registers 110°, about 1 hour.

  4. Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add shallots and cook, stirring often, until shallots are very soft, about 6 minutes. Remove pan from heat; stir in the remaining 1 cup Riesling.

  5. Return to stove, increase heat to medium-high, bring to a simmer, and cook until reduced to 1/4 cup, about 8 minutes. Add thyme leaves, mustard, honey, pepper, and salt and whisk until well blended.

  6. Remove ham from oven and increase heat to 350°. Using a pastry brush, spread mustard glaze over ham. Return pan to oven and bake ham, tenting with foil if browning too quickly, until internal temperature registers 135° and crust is golden brown, 15-30 minutes. Serve with extra mustard glaze on the side. Enjoy!
