The Ham

  • 1 - 5 lb spiral ham
  • 1 - 14.9 oz can Guinness stout
  • fresh parsley, to garnish

The Glaze

  • 1-1/2 cup Guinness stout
  • 2 tsp dry mustard
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey


  • Place ham in a roasting pan with stout. Cover tightly with foil and bake at 350° for one hour. Lift the foil and baste ham 2-3 times during cooking.
  • While it’s cooking, prepare the glaze by combining stout, mustard, garlic, brown sugar, Worcestershire, and honey. Pour into small saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower heat to a light boil and reduce by half. Set aside.
  • Remove the ham from the oven and increase the oven temperature to 425°. Remove foil and brush the glaze liberally over the ham. Return it to the oven uncovered for about 10-15 minutes or until the ham’s internal temperature is 120°-130°. Garnish and serve.
