  • 8 pound fully cooked spiral ham

Honey Butter Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  • In a small bowl combine all the glaze ingredients and stir.
  • Spoon the glaze all over the ham, if you are using a spiral ham, make sure to get the glaze between each slice.
  • Roast the ham, uncovered, for 20 minutes, baste with the dripping and roast for another 20 minutes.
  • Then baste the ham with the pan drippings, cover and roast for another 40-60 minutes until the ham reaches 145 degrees. Continue to baste every 20 minutes. Uncover for the last 20 minutes of baking, and for a crispy top, broil for 3-5 minutes in the end.
  • Slice thinly to serve.
