DIRECTIONS

  1. Place the ham, thyme, 10 cloves, onions and garlic into a large pot.
  2. Cover completely with water and bring to boil.
  3. Allow the ham to boil for 30 minutes
  4. Drain the water from the pot and place the boiled ham onto a baking rack lined with foil.
  5. Bake the ham at 350°F. For every pound of ham, bake for 20 minutes.
  6. Once out of the oven, allow the ham to rest for 30 minutes.
  7. For the spiked sorrel glaze, add sorrel, brown sugar, sorrel jelly, Scotch whiskey, ginger, honey and cinnamon to a saucepan.
