  • spiced rum

Does The Glaze Go on the Ham Before I Bake It?

The glaze does not go on before you bake the ham. After you cook the ham for about an hour, you will remove from the oven and glaze. You will then glaze again near the end of baking the ham.

Serve with your favorite mashed potatoes, corn bread muffins and glazed carrots with homemade bread and don’t forget the gravy!

How Do I Keep Glazed Ham Moist?

When cooking your ham, cover it in foil to prevent it from drying out while cooking. After an hour of cooking, you can remove the foil and glaze the ham. The glaze should caramelize. If you feel the ham is drying out, you can cover it again, but do let the glaze caramelize.

How Long Do I Cook A Pre-Cooked Ham?

Precooked hams should be cooked for 2 1/2 hours. Check the internal temperature reaches 145F.

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon all spice
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg


  • Preheat your oven 350F.

  • Place the pan on the stove on medium heat.
  • You will want the mix to come to a slow boil for about 5 minutes.

  • Remove the foil.  Use care and place ham on it's side in the pan, so you can see the spirals.

  • Remove from the oven and cut the ham and place ham onto platter.
  • Use the brush to glaze the remaining glaze onto the ham (optional).
