honey glazed spice ham recipe
Ham seems to be a dish we serve during the holidays. We usually buy a couple when they are on sale and freeze one for later. We made this honey glazed spiced ham for Easter recently and it was delicious. Something we will be making again. My husband came up with this sweet and spicy glaze.
We buy a precooked ham. All we really need to do is slowly cook the ham and glaze it. Allowing the glaze to infuse into the ham. It’s a dish my dad will call and ask, can you guys bring the ham to dinner.
1 spiral ham, precooked
1 cup water
40 whole cloves, or until your fingers hurts and you can’t do it anymore.
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
3 tablespoons pineapple juice
2 tablespoons spiced dark rum
1 tablespoon salted butter
How to Bake a Ham
Preheat your oven to 350.
Place your ham in a baking pan with the water. Press the cloves randomly into the outside of the ham. I did this until my fingers hurt and I stopped (about 40 cloves). Cover the ham with tin foil.
Allow to cook for 30 minutes and make your glaze.
In a pan add all the ingredients to make the glaze and stir. Bring to a boil and remove from the heat.
We took the BBQ baster and put the glaze in the different layers of the ham, turning the ham on it’s side.
Cover the ham back up with the foil and put back in the oven. Repeat glazing a few times until the ham has cooked 3 hours.
This recipe does take a few hours to cook, so this makes it a easier recipe to manage on the weekends.
This recipe is based on a precooked ham.
The ham should be thawed before starting.
Glaze the ham several times.
Be sure to cover the ham with foil to prevent it from burning.
You can use this recipe for spiral hams, bone-in and boneless hams.
Now it’s your turn. Who will you make this honey glazed spiced ham for? What will you make from the leftovers?
