Variation Ideas

  • Change Glaze Ingredients – Feel free to add in or substitute glaze ingredients. Add in maple syrup, lemon juice, or cinnamon for warm flavors.
  • Slow Cooker – Feel free to make this ham in your slow cooker instead of the ham. If you are wanting to save your oven for casseroles and side dishes, make your ham in the slow cooker.
  • Ham – Feel free to choose a ham that you prefer. We love the spiral ham but you can use a smoky flavor ham to make this recipe.

Recipe Tips

  • Glaze – If glaze hardens while the ham is cooking, return to heat to warm it through. Heat the glaze on medium heat combine the ingredients.
  • Double The Glaze – If you love the glaze as much as we do, we like to double the glaze. This allows us to serve as a side.
  • Heating Ham – Heat the ham until it reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees. Use a meat thermometer reads the temperature. You can eat cold ham, but if a holiday we like it to be warm.
  • Cook Ham – Cook ham in a shallow roasting pan or baking sheet for the best results. Bake ham covered with foil and then bake uncovered after cooking for about 2 hours.
  • Adding Remaining Glaze – After cooking the ham, we like to add more glaze on it and cooki it longer. After adding the glaze cook the ham longer. Cook for about 15 minutes to 20 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 145 degrees.
  • Cutting Ham – Spiral hams are usually precut, but you still might need to slice with a sharp knife. Make sure to get as much meat off the bone as possible. But leaving a little meat on the bone is great too.
