How Do You Make a Honey-Glazed Ham?


Quick Answer

To create a honey-glazed ham, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Score the top of a 5-pound ham, and press cloves into it using 1/4 cup of whole cloves. Place the ham in a baking dish. In a small saucepan, combine 1/4 cup of dark corn syrup, 2 cups of honey and 2/3 cups of butter. Stir the mixture until well combined. Bake the ham for 75 minutes, basting it with the glaze every 10 minutes.

Full Answer

When making a honey-glazed raw ham, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and adjust the oven racks so the roasting pan fits into the oven.

Rinse the ham, and place it into the roasting pan; cover, and bake for 20 minutes per pound. In a medium saucepan, combine a 16-ounce jar of honey with an 8-ounce box of brown sugar. Heat until smooth and the sugar has completely dissolved. When the ham is halfway through the estimated roasting time, pour the honey glaze over the ham. Cover, and continue to bake for the remaining time, basting with pan juices every 10 to 15 minutes.

The ham is finished when a meat thermometer inserted into the meat reads 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Allow the honey-glazed ham to stand for 15 minutes to let the juices distribute evenly throughout the meat.
