  • 10 lb bone-in spiral ham

Brown Sugar Glaze


  • 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.

For the Brown Sugar Glaze

  • 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.
