My Honey Glazed Ham

posted in: Recipes 0

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!

  • 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.)
