Servings 12 servings
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Unwrap ham and place face down in roasting or baking dish. Cover well with foil.
Bake 12-15 minutes per pound (or cook according to specific package directions). Baste 1-2 times through cooking with ham juices that have accumulated in the bottom of the pan. Be sure to separate the slices as you baste. This ensures ham will stay moist.
Make the glaze while ham is baking.
In a small saucepan, measure out all the ingredients and stir over medium heat.
Simmer glaze until sugar melts and becomes syrupy about 1-2 minutes.
Remove from heat and glaze hame generously, being sure to separate the slices of spiral ham to get the glaze into all of the nooks and crannies
Bake glazed ham at 425 degrees F for 10 minutes or until sticky and set. Remove ham from oven and cover with foil to rest 10-15 minutes. Carve and serve.
