Sweet Honey Glazed Ham

Sometimes you want a nice meal that doesn't take a ton of bowls and pots and pans. Ham, glaze, sides. Done. This is a recipe I've used for years. It's simple and really compliments the ham.  If you aren't looking for a turkey for Thanksgiving or Easter, ham is always an excellent choice.

Sweet Honey Glazed Ham
adapted from All Recipes

  • 1 (10 pound) fully-cooked, bone-in ham
  • 1 1/4 cups packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 large orange, juiced and zested
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Place ham in a roasting pan.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine brown sugar, pineapple juice, honey, orange juice, orange zest, Dijon mustard, and ground cloves. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Bake ham in preheated oven uncovered for 2 hours. Remove ham from oven, and brush with glaze. Bake for an additional 30 to 45 minutes, brushing ham with glaze every 10 minutes. 

Chicken Stock, Red Onion, Green Pepper, Carrots. Toss all in rice cooker. Simple.

Steamed fresh green and yellow beans, tossed with butter and dill. 

Buns. Gorgeous. Delicious. Part of my Adopt-a GF blogger post soon.

All in all, a simple classic dinner. Tons of leftovers. Lucky me.

  1. I've always been intimidated by cooking ham and just buy precooked or let my mom cook it. It seems silly to me now that I think about it. You make it sound easy, and your ham looks delicious. The honey glaze sounds so tasty too with the pineapple juice. Thanks for participating in Gluten-Free Wednesdays.

  2. I do buy the larger pre-cooked hams although they almost look uncooked. It's mostly just reheating and glazing. You could this with those little nugget or ham halves as well. I made this last Christmas for the big family dinner. It went over extremely well.
