Keyword: glazed ham, spiral glazed ham
Servings: 8
  • 6 pound fully cooked bone-in half shank spiral ham
  • 15 whole cloves
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place a baking rack in a shallow pan. Coat with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, brown sugar, and orange juice; set aside.
  3. Distribute the cloves all around the ham, in between the spirals.
  4. Place ham cut side down on the rack. Drizzle 1/3 of the glaze over the ham, spreading evenly.
  5. Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads 130-140 (approximately 2 hours depending on how many pounds your ham is.)
  6. Drizzle the glaze 2-3 more times during the cooking process, spacing as evenly as you can, with the final drizzle during the last half hour.
  7. Let ham rest for 10 minutes before carving. Serve with any reserved sauce or pan drippings.
Recipe Notes

If you buy a half shank ham that is not pre-cut/spiraled, you can score the ham in a diamond pattern using a sharp knife, cutting off the hard rind and some of the fat first. Stud the ham with the cloves, placing them in the slits.
