Baked Ham Recipe

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 - 8 to 10 pound smoked ham
  • whole cloves

Glaze for Baked Ham

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar

Recipe Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven according to package cooking directions. Place ham fat side up on the rack of a shallow roasting pan. Insert meat thermometer through fat side into center of thickest part of the ham, but don't let it touch the bone.
  2. Bake ham according to package directions. About 1/2 hour before ham is done prepare glaze by combining ingredients and mixing well. Next remove ham from oven and pour off drippings. Peel away any rind that is left on ham and score ham with a sharp knife.
  3. While scoring make diamond shaped cuts. Insert a clove into each diamond. Spread ham generously with glaze and return to oven. After applying glaze, bake until desired internal temperature is reached.

  4. Remove ham from oven and allow to stand for about 20 minutes before slicing. If desired, remaining glaze can be poured over sliced ham.

Makes 10 to 12 servings.
