Ready In:
2hrs 10mins




  • Preheat oven to 325.
  • Rinse ham and place in large baking pan.
  • Pour honey over ham. Using your hands, pack the brown sugar evenly over the ham, pressing firmly so that the sugar will stick.
  • Cover and place in oven. Bake for 1 1/2 to 2 hours depending on size of ham. (Since it is fully cooked, all you are doing is warming it up.) Baste with juices.

    I made this for Easter dinner with my sister and her family. Everyone said it was the best ham they have ever had. I did mine overnight in a large electric roaster. The meat was tender and the brown sugar and honey made the meat succulent. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks so much for posting this! I've never made a ham, don't like ham and of course won a ham at this year's Christmas party. Had no idea what to do with it. My mom used to poke cloves all over hers. Yuk. I REALLY like this ham! I didn't have a full 6oz of honey - probably more like 2oz - so I used about 2 cups of brown sugar. Very good. Super easy. Now I know I'm going to enjoy my leftovers! :) Thanks again!

    I have never baked a ham (ever), but ended up with a 10.5 lb. uncooked ham in the freezer. I wanted to find a recipe that was EZ and whose ingredients I most likely had on hand. This is that recipe. I prepared the ham as described and baked it for 4.5 hours basting every hour. If I ever bake a ham again, and after trying this winner, I most likely will, I won't even consider any other recipe. The ham is moist and really tasty without being overpowered. As the ham bakes, there are more and more juices for basting, which are extremely useful and tasty as well. I'm trying to figure out how I can save the juices and use them in something else! Thank you!
