Honey Baked Ham

Turkey is to Thanksgiving as Honey Baked Ham is to Christmas! We wanted to bring our readers an extra special and cozy recipe… and not to mention delicious. Our families have always had a traditional Christmas meal, which always includes a honey baked ham. The best thing about this recipe is that it is so tasty standalone, and can also be used for many easy leftover meals, too. Kings Hawaiian rolls, anyone?

Honey Baked Ham

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 bone-in spiral sliced ham (8-12 lbs)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup coconut brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Prepare a pan large enough to hold the ham and its juices by lining it with aluminum foil.
  2. In a saucepan, prepare glaze by combining butter, apple cider vinegar, mustard, honey, coconut brown sugar, cloves and cinnamon. Heat on low until butter is melted and ingredients are combined. Keep glaze warm while baking the ham.
  3. Place ham in prepared pan and brush with glaze.
  4. Bake ham for 1-1 ½ hours (depending on the size of the ham; check ham packaging for exact cooking times). Brush on additional glaze every 15 minutes.
  5. Remove ham when it’s done baking. Let rest for 10-15 minutes before serving.
