Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

16 Nov

 

Oh my, this ham was delicious!  My husband and I had to stop ourselves from eating too much!  I’m glad I finally decided that tonight was the night for some Zaycon Foods ham!  I first cut the ham into 3 sections, which of course I didn’t cut very evenly, so this section was about 4.5 pounds of the 10 pounds that it was.  Oh well.  It was a good size for us, with slices leftover to lunch tomorrow.  This was a fully cooked, boneless ham, so really, I just had to make sure the ham was heated though, then added the glaze and cooked a little longer for added flavor.  Yum!  This glaze was perfect since I received a pineapple and oranges at Bountiful Baskets this past weekend.  The recipe called for pineapple juice, but I just took fresh pineapple chunks and pureed them in the blender.  The honey was from a bucket of honey I bought a while back that I finally divided into smaller jars today.  Everything tastes better fresh!  This does have Dijon mustard, so if you aren’t a fan, I think you could leave it out and still have a nice glaze with the rest of the ingredients.

 

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham
Based on recipe here

What you need:

1 ham (mine was fully cooked, boneless, 4.5 pounds in weight)
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup pureed fresh pineapple (or 1/3 cup pineapple juice)
Juice of 1 orange (or 1/3 cup orange juice
1/3 cup honey
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon cloves

How to make it:

Preheat oven to 325 F.  Cook ham according to type and weight, using guidelines on package or here.  For my ham, I lined a roasting pan with foil, set the ham in, added 1/2 cup water to the pan, and covered the ham in foil.  I cooked it for 45 minutes to make sure it was heated through.

Meanwhile, combine the ingredients for the glaze in a small saucepan.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.

Once ham has finished cooking, remove the foil cover.  Pour 1/3 of the glaze over the ham, and cook uncovered for 10 minutes.  Repeat until glaze is gone, for a total of 30 minutes of cooking uncovered with the glaze.  Check to make sure the temperature is at 140 F if the ham was in original packaging, or 165 F for re-packaged or leftover ham.  Cook additional time as needed.  Slice and serve!
