The Sun Sentinel's copycat ham recipe uses the same mixture of sugar and spices, but recommends brushing the ham with honey or corn syrup before topping it with sugar. This version also offers an alternative to torching. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, and broil the sugared ham until the glaze begins to caramelize. This method requires constant supervision to prevent burning.

Mommy's Kitchen's version of HoneyBaked ham involves covering a spiral-sliced ham with a mixture of 1/2 cup of pear or apple juice and 1/2 cup of orange juice, and then baking the ham at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, basting frequently. Combine 1/2 cup of packed brown sugar with 1/ cup of honey, brush over the juice-basted ham, and continue cooking to an internal temperature of 140 degrees, or about an hour. Use a butane torch to brown the honey-sugar glaze, and serve warm.
