CINNAMON GLAZED HONEY BAKED HAM

Sharing is caring!

A great ham is hard to beat, and when looking for a recipe to give your broiling skills a go, our cinnamon, and ginger-glazed Honey Baked Ham would be a perfect start!

As the name suggests, our honey-baked ham is oozing with scoops of cinnamon, ginger, and honey. Heck, we even threw in a bit of allspice for good measure.

Initially, the problem with most supermarket hams was that they offered very little flavor but were priced way above reasonable expectations.

Now, we consumers have taken back control.

Opting for more flavorful, robust versions at a fraction of the cost.

Nutmeg and clove round out this succulent honey-baked ham.

Both combined bring out the soft undertones of the ham in a nice, air-like way. And we can't mix in honey and sugar without a lot of warm butter.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

In addition to your 8lb bone-in spiral-sliced half ham, you will need the following:

  • Unsalted butter
  • Honey
  • Sugar
  • Seasoned Salt
  • Onion powder
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Ground ginger
  • Ground cloves
  • Paprika
  • Allspice

HOW TO MAKE HONEY-BAKED HAM

Although there's a combination of steps, making ham is pretty easy. Here's how to get started:

Step 1: Crockpot

  1. Add melted butter and honey together. Stir to mix.
  2. Place ham in the crockpot and slightly separate the spiral slices, rubbing the mixed butter and honey on them.
  3. Cover and allow to cook on low for 4-5 hours.

Step 2: Broiler

  1. Preheat the broiler on low.
  2. Transfer the ham to the roasting pan.

You want to ensure the ham doesn't dry out during the roasting stage. Have a cup or two of warm water nearby, continuously monitor the ham, and add as necessary. Also, cover with foil to prevent drying if needed.

Next, Glaze Your Honey Baked Ham

  1. Combine the sugar, seasoning salt, onion powder, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground ginger, ground cloves, paprika, and allspice together. Stir to mix.
  2. Divide in half. Set one-half of the mixture aside.
  3. Paint half the mixed seasonings on top of the ham using your hands.

Step 4: Additional Instructions

  1. Add the remaining mixed seasoning to a small saucepan. Stir to mix. Add about 2-3 tablespoons of water, stirring to blend completely.
  2. Return to the broiler (still on low heat) for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Remove from the broiler and set aside for 5-10 minutes.
  4. Serve.

ADDITIONAL TIPS

  • When the ham is near the end of cook time, carefully separate the slices and pour most of the glaze over the ham so that the glaze soaks through the meat.
  • While meat is roasting in the pan, you can baste and glaze with the juices from the bottom of the pan.
