Honey glazed ham is a fun dish to make because you can create different takes on classic, according to your tastes. This recipe is something that I came up with one day because I wanted to enjoy the smoky flavor of chili powder with the sweet crusty texture that you would normally have from a honey-baked ham. Don't feel intimidated because this is one of the easiest meats you can cook. I say it's easy because the ham is already cooked so you're just warming it up and adding your flavor. It is a large cut of meat, so it will take a couple hours to get up to temperature. I hope you enjoy!
Honey Glazed Ham
- 1/3 Cup Honey
- 10 lb. Bone-in Ham Shank
- 1 TB Brown Sugar
- 1 TB White Sugar
- 1 TB Honey
- 1 TB Water
- ½ T Cinnamon
- ¼ T Ground Ginger
- ¼ T Chili Powder
- ½ T Onion Powder
- Preheat oven to 300°.
- Unwrap ham from package, rinse and then completely pat dry.
- Place ham with the cut side facing down on a high-rimmed baking sheet.
- Take quarter cup of honey and, with a brush, spread the honey over the ham.
- Place in the oven for an hour and a half.
- Mix remaining honey and spices sugar in a small bowl.
- Pull ham out of the oven, brush on the honey spice mixture and then put back into the oven.
- Over the next hour, brush the ham with the honey spice glaze every 15 minutes.
- After the last glazing, turn broiler on and try to crust the glaze slightly. You’re looking to caramelized the honey and spices, and not burn them. You want to get a little bit of bubbling, nothing more. About 5 – 10 minutes.
- Remove ham from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
- Slice and serve with you sides of choice (for me it’s green bean casserole or Brussel sprouts for veg, and roasted potatoes.)
