  2. Hang in a cool place for 1-2 days to dry. It contributes to the formation of an appetizing crust on meat. If it is possible, then smoke in cold smoke (up to 20 ᵒС) for 8-10 hours, and if there is no such possibility, proceed immediately to baking. Heat the oven to 140 ° C.

  3. Carefully grease the ham from all sides with lard. 
    Insert the ham on the wire rack into the preheated oven and bake for 2.5-3 hours until the temperature in the middle of the ham reaches 60 ° C. Or, with a deep piercing, clear juice will begin to flow.

  4. Take the ham out of the oven and let it cool for 40-50 minutes.

  5. Place all the ingredients for the glaze (butter, winegar, honeay, salt) in a small saucepan and put on medium heat. Bring to a boil, cook stirring for 5-7 minutes.

  6. Smear ham with glaze and set for 10 minutes in a preheated oven. Next, coat with glaze again and bake for another 10 minutes.
