Guinness Baked Ham

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by mersaydees

Based on a recipe from the 1992 March/April Cooking Light magazine. The article claims that corned beef and cabbage is not traditional in Ireland for the St. Patrick's Day holiday:... "Guinness Baked Ham is more likely to be part of a tradtional Irish menu. It's basted with Guinness Stout, a creamy brew from Dublin."

What a wonderful way to make ham flashy - the stout is great and plenty leftover to drink when you are done cooking - lol! Love the flavor that the mustard, stout and brown sugar bring to the ham. Made for ZWT8
