  • 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


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl combine all the glaze ingredients and stir.
  3. Spoon the glaze all over the ham, if you are using a spiral ham, make sure to get the glaze between each slice.
  4. Roast the ham, uncovered, for 20 minutes, baste with the dripping and roast for another 20 minutes.
  5. 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.
  6. Slice thinly to serve.
