orange rum glazed ham recipe
Our family doesn’t save eating ham to just the holidays. We will buy them when they are on sale, freeze one for later and enjoy it for a nice weekend dinner. Glazes are a great way to add flavor to your ham. This glazed ham recipe is another option to make your ham delicious on another level.
You will want to put the ingredients in a pan, before putting on the stove for your safety.
1/2 cup spiced rum
1 cup brown sugar
juice from 1 orange
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon all spice
Preheat your oven 350F.
Place your precooked ham in oven with 1 cup water. The ham should be flat side down and covered in foil.
In a pan (not on the stove), add all the ingredients and stir to incorporate.
Place the pan on the stove on medium heat.
You will want the mix to come to a slow boil for about 5 minutes.
After an hour of cooking the ham, remove the ham from the oven.
Remove the foil. Use care and place ham on it’s side in the pan, so you can see the spirals.
Use a brush and spread the glaze onto and into the sections of the ham. Take about half of the glaze, reserving some to glaze the ham once it’s cooked.
Place the ham back into the oven (no foil) and cook for an hour, until it is hot (because you ham was precooked and just needed to be heated).
Remove from the oven and cut the ham and place ham onto platter.
Use the brush to glaze the remaining glaze onto the ham.
