How To Make honey baked ham

  • 1
    Remove the skin and most of the excess fat. Leave a layer of fat, though, to render while the ham bakes.
  • 2
    Score ham in a diamond pattern. This looks nice but also allows the fat to render while cooking.
  • 3
    Place scored ham in a roasting pan.
  • 4
    Bake at 325 for 20 minutes per pound until the internal temperature is 160.
  • 5
    While ham is baking make the glaze. Mix mustard, brown sugar, honey, and cinnamon together.
  • 6
    During the last 45 minutes of cooking spread glaze over ham.
  • 7
    Let ham rest.
  • 8
    Slice into thin slices.
