Apple Butter Glazed Ham

Judy Haluzak


I found this recipe on Mr. Food Everyday Diabetic Recipes. My husband and I made it for Easter 2014. We liked it so much we made it again for Christmas. This will be the only glaze we will use on our hams from now on. It surpasses any purchased glaze.

1 Hr 30 Min


6-10 lb. bone in smoked ham
3/4 c
apple butter
1/4 c
dijon mustard
1/4 c
light brown sugar, lightly packed
1/4 c
sugar-free maple sugar
1/4 tsp
ground cloves
1/4 tsp


1Preheat oven to 325°F. Score the ham with a paring knife through the skin and fat in a tight crosshatch pattern. Place the ham, fat side up, in a large roasting pan. Bake 1 hour.
2Whisk the apple butter, mustard, brown sugar, syrup and cloves in a bowl until smooth. At this point you could put in small sauce pan and heat to melt the flavors together. Brush the ham with half the glaze and bake for 15 more minutes.
3Brush remaining glaze over ham and bake another 15 minutes or until ham is heated through.
NOTE: At this time you may add sliced pineapple and maraschino cherries, using tooth picks to keep in place.
4Let rest for 15 minutes before carving.
