Christmas Honey Glazed Ham

A delicious honey glazed ham is sure to impress your family and friends this Christmas.


This recipe is easy to prepare and makes a very welcome addition to any Christmas day spread.


What you’ll need:


1 2-3KG ham

2 cup honey

2/3 cup butter

1/4 cup dark maple syrup

1 Tablespoon brown sugar

whole cloves optional about 1/4 cup




Take ham out of the refrigerator and allow to rest at least 30 minutes before cooking. Preheat oven to 160.


Prepare the glaze by heating honey, butter, dark maple syrup, and brown sugar in medium saucepan on medium-low heat.


Line a 9×13 in pan with aluminium foil. If scoring the ham, lightly score the top into diamond shapes and place the ham in the pan.


If using whole cloves, put them in between the lines you scored, but remove before cutting and eating. Brush the glaze on top and create a foil tent over the ham.


Bake the ham according to how many KG’s you have. Usually 30 minutes per KG. Brush the glaze over the ham every 15 minutes.


Once the ham is cooked, remove the foil tent and caramelize the top by turning the oven to broil and letting the ham get dark for about 3-5 minutes.


Remove the ham from the oven and pour remaining glaze over the top. Cut into thin slices and enjoy!
