Honey Glazed Ham

 

 

I make this ham every Christmas and Easter and it’s always eagerly devoured. When I decided I was no longer going to pay the high price for one of those baked hams that are so popular during the holidays, I set out on a mission to create my own tasty version. Now, instead of paying an exorbitant price and standing in a long line to pick up my holiday ham, I simply pop this honey glazed ham in the oven and it comes out every bit as good – if not better, than the name brand ham!

Honey Glazed Ham
This honey glazed ham is perfect for any celebration. The ham is glazed with a spiced honey sauce and baked in the oven. So much better than those name brand name baked hams that are so popular during the holidays. It's always juicy and the exterior has a wonderful smokey, sweet flavor.

Instructions
  1. Score the ham in a diamond pattern; stud with whole cloves. Place the ham in a foil lined baking pan.
  2. In the top pan of a double boiler, heat the brown sugar, honey, and butter until the sugar dissolves. Keep the glaze warm while the ham is baking.
  3. Brush the glaze over the entire ham; tent with foil. Bake approximately 15 minutes per pound* in the preheated oven until the ham reaches an internal temperature of 145° F. Baste the ham with the honey glaze every 10 to 15 minutes. During the last 4 to 5 minutes of baking, remove the foil and turn on the broiler. Broil just long enough to caramelize the glaze. Watch carefully so it doesn't burn. Remove the ham from oven, and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.
Recipe Notes

 

If you prefer, you can skip the whole cloves that are used to stud the ham and simply add 1/4 tsp ground cloves to the glaze mixture.

Line the baking pan VERY well with aluminum foil. The glaze will get sticky and make a huge mess, so if you want to make clean up easy, don't be shy with the foil.

Keep the glaze warm while the ham is baking. Brush warm glaze on the ham every 20 to 25 minutes.

*If you're using a spiral sliced ham bake it approximately 10 minutes per pound.
