Update Servings
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 3 tablespoons dark corn syrup
  • 3/4 teaspoon dry mustard (high quality)
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1/4 cup whole cloves
  • 1 ham of choice
30 mins
2 hrs
3 hrs
  • Score ham with a sharp knife in a diagonal pattern. Repeat scoring, diagonally, in the opposite direction to create a crossing pattern. Insert whole cloves at the crossings.
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Place ham in roasting pan fat side up; the melting fat will baste your ham. Turn ham over half way through baking to avoid uneven salting from the brine in the meat. If roasting a ham that is not precooked, bake for approximately 20-30 minutes per pound. If the ham is precooked, follow the label directions for cooking times.
  • While ham is roasting, combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan. Cook over medium heat and bring to a full boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and cook one minute.
  • Remove ham from oven prior to the last 30 minutes of baking. Cover ham with glaze. Glaze ham every 10 minutes during last 30 minutes of baking.
  • Serve remaining glaze with ham.

    Tip: Baste ham with pan drippings while glazing.

"I loved the glaze on this ham. Wish I would have make extra for serving. I left the cloves off because we are not big fans of the flavor they give to ham."
