Honey Glazed Ham


  • 1 (10lb) fully-cooked, bone-in ham
  • 1 ¼ cups dark brown sugar, packed
  • ⅓ cup pineapple juice
  • ⅓ cup honey, or more to taste
  • ⅓ large orange
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • 1 ½ tsp lemon juice, or to taste (optional)


Preheat the oven to 325° F. Place ham in a roasting pan.

Bake ham, uncovered, in the preheated oven for 2 hours.

While the ham is baking, combine brown sugar, pineapple juice, and ⅓ cup honey in a saucepan.

Zest orange into the saucepan, then squeeze in the juice. Add Dijon mustard and ground cloves; whisk mixture over medium-high heat as it comes to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until glaze thickens slightly, 5 to 10 minutes.

Taste glaze and adjust seasonings. Add lemon juice for more tang, or honey to make it sweeter. Set aside.

Remove ham from the oven after it has baked for 2 hours. Brush with glaze. Bake for an additional 30 to 45 minutes, brushing ham with glaze every 10 minutes.

TIP: Add leftover glaze to the pan drippings along with a little flour or cornstarch to make a nice sauce to accompany the meat. Use the ham bone and any trimmings to make soup afterward
