Simple and Sweet Ham Glaze

Total Time

A quick and easy glaze for your ham. I found it on awhile back, and it is a favorite of my husband. You may not use all the glaze for a half sized ham. Servings depend on the size of your ham.


  1. Mix all ingredients together.
  2. To use the glaze, remove your ham from the oven when there's 30 minutes left. Pour off any drippings that have accumulated in your pan. Take a sharp knife and score the ham in a criss-cross pattern. If it's a spiral ham, making a set of vertical cuts should be fine. Use about a third of the glaze to coat the ham, and return to 400°F oven for 8-10 minutes.
  3. Repeat applications of the glaze 1-2 more times, returning the ham to cook for about 8 to 10 minutes after each application of the glaze. Be sure not to use glaze in the bottom of the pan - this will dull the sheen.

I was recruited to make a ham for an early Easter dinner for 12. This glaze was incredibly easy and was very tasty, I received many compliments. Thanks.
