Baked Ham

You are here

A great glazed ham needs to have three things: a sweet, spicy and tangy flavor, a gorgeous, shiny appearance, and a crispy, crackling crust. My glaze delivers on all notes and makes a stunning centerpiece for the Easter table.


4 tablespoons Ham Glaze
1 (5 pound) smoked ham
2 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 teaspoons water

Serving size: 


1. Heat ham according to package directions (usually this is 10 minutes per pound at 325º. I like to add enough water to cover the bottom of the pan and cover the ham with foil for the initial cooking time)
2. In small bowl mix together the Ham Glaze, honey and water.
3. Remove the ham 30 minutes before the ham is finished cooking and brush it with the glaze. Return to the oven uncovered for additional cooking time.
4. Rest 15-30 minutes before slicing.

Recipe Tip:
I prefer a bone-in ham (not spiral) and to make the criss-cross cuts myself.
