  1. I like to bake a butt ham with the bone in it. after the ham is cooked, I clean it get rid of the bone and fat. Then I put 2 cups of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of mustard together I usually put it in the microwave for a min. I then stir it and pour it on top of the cooked ham I then place it back in the oven 350 for about 20 min.

  2. If you’re referring to a “real” sugar cured ham:
    1 medium ham
    1 pint salt
    2 Tbsp black pepper
    1 Tbsp red pepper
    3 Tbsp brown sugar

    Combine salt, peppers, and brown sugar. Place cloth on flat surface, place meat on cloth and rub meat with mixture, getting a lot at bone end. Wrap meat in cloth using all mixture. Wrap in newspaper and place in cloth sack, tie shut. With bone end DOWN, hang in shed–takes at least 6 weeks to cure. Can hang until summer if desired. Obviously this should be done in fall when hogs are normally butchered.
