This is a delicious glaze for your upcoming Easter ham...depending how many you are serving for Easter, you may want to make 1 1/2 times the recipe, so you have enough to glaze, plus serve with the ham...and it will be used as it's delicious. I also use leftover glaze for glazing smoked pork chops..

How To Make honey ham glaze

  • 1
    Combine all ingredients, except for the cloves, in a small sauce pan. Cook over medium heat and bring to a full boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and cook one minute.
  • 2
    Bake ham according to package directions.
  • 3
    Remove ham from oven prior to the last 30 minutes of baking. Score ham with a sharp knife in a diagonal pattern. Repeat scoring, diagonally, in the opposite direction to create a crossing. Insert whole cloves at the crossings. Cover ham with glaze.

    Glaze ham every 10 minutes during last 30 minutes of baking. Serve remaining glaze with ham.

    Tip: Baste ham with pan drippings while glazing.
