One of the components of a Christmas dinner might be a ham. Some people use this meat as they often used turkey for Thanksgiving.

There are a few different ways that you can prepare a ham, but once you see how one man prepares his, it could be a new tradition. Perhaps the best thing about this recipe is that it’s easy to do if you don’t have a lot of time to spend cooking for the holiday.

It has a delicious flavor, and it will likely impress family and friends. There is a brine used for the ham that is essential in getting all of the delicious flavors. You need a plastic bucket that is large enough for your ham to sit in as this is how you will coat the meat.

Brown sugar, spices and a curing salt are used to make the brine. You also need several quarts of boiling water that you will pour over the ham. Score the skin with a knife so that the flavors settle into the meat.

Keep the ham in the brine for about five days, rinse it with water, and bake the ham for about three hours at 325 degrees until the meat is cooked through.
