Joulukinkku (christmas ham)

1 raw shank-in ham, 4-6 kg (9-13 lbs)
3 Tbs salt
2 Tbs sugar
5 l (1.1 gal) water
1/2 l (2 c) course salt
250 g (2 c) sugar
rye flour
1 Tbs mustard
3 Tbs bread crumbs
1 Tbs sugar

1. Rub the shank with the salt and sugar. Bring to boil the water, salt and sugar. Skim off foam and let cool. Place the shank in the brine and leave to marinate for 2 weeks.
2. When the ham is to be cooked, cover it with paste made of water and rye flour. Place in a shallow baking dish with water on the bottom so that the bottom of the ham will not burn. Bake in a hot oven, 250 C (450 F), for 3 hours. Remove the rye crust. Baste the ham with mustard/breadcrumb/sugar mixture and quickly brown. Store the ham under the rye crust.
3. The ham can also be baked covered with foil, but the rye paste adds a very special flavor and "maturity" to the taste.
