Simple and Sweet Ham Glaze

"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."

Ready In:




  • Mix all ingredients together.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  1. 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.


I've been hanging around here for awhile, so I guess filling this part out is overdue...:oops: (6/09) I am a teacher, married to a pretty swell fella, and have a spoiled rotten princess, er, I mean, cat. I'm pretty eclectic with my passions - obviously cooking and eating being high on the list! I love to read (from cookbooks to horror/suspense to fiction, fantasy, sci-fi to nonfiction...if it's still long enough, I'll read it). I make beaded jewelry, mostly bead weaving, some stringing. Enjoy listening to most sorts of music - and it's a darn shame I can't dance, sing, or have any sort of rhythm. Computer geek at heart - I'm frequently on the net or playing games in my spare time. I also like drawing and writing, but I don't have as much time to do as much as I used to. I have amassed quite the Good Eats DVD collection (thanks to my DH.... and he's sweet enough to make sure I've picked up the plungers and dino squirt bottle along the way :D). And to complete the quintessential nerd profile, yes, I do read comics. I couldn't pick a single favorite cookbook, but golly, I looove fundraiser cookbooks. Talk about tried and true! I tend to collect all sorts of cookbooks, most of them southern cooking. Guess I cook what I know. If you ever try any of my recipes - thank you! I hope they tickle your tastebuds! <img src="">
