baked ham glaze sweet spicy tangy victoria gourmet recipe

A great glazed ham recipe has three essential requirements. No. 1-  a gorgeous and shiny appearance – after all  we eat with our eyes first. No. 2 - for each and every bite to be sweet, spicy, tangy, and of course tender. No. 3 - a crispy, crackling crust. My glaze delivers on all three notes and makes a stunning centerpiece for any occasion.



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

Total Time: 
1 hour, 15 minutes
Serving size: 


1. Heat ham according to package directions. (Usually this is 10 minutes per pound at 325ºF. 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 remaining 30 minutes of 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.
