Ginger Rum-glazed Ham

a, 7- to 8-pound half (shank end) of a fully cooked cured ham

1/3

cup

chopped preserved ginger in syrup, (available at specialty foods

3

dark rum

parsley, sprigs for garnish if desired

1

If the ham comes with the skin still attached, remove most of it with a

2

sharp knife, leaving a layer of fat and a collar of skin around the shank

3

bone. Trim the fat, leaving a layer about 1/3 inch thick, and score the

4

layer remaining into diamonds. Bake the ham on a rack in a roasting pan in

5

a preheated 350°F. oven for 55 minutes. In a blender blend together the

6

ginger, the brown sugar, and the rum, spoon the glaze over the ham,

7

spreading it, and bake the ham for 30 to 35 minutes more, or until the

8

glaze is brown and bubbly. Transfer the ham to a platter, garnish the

9

platter with the parsley, and let the ham stand for 15 minutes before

10

carving.
