Holiday Ham

Sweet and Spicy Glazed Ham


6-8 pound fully cooked smoked bone-in ham (bake uncovered for 1-1/2 hours)

4 pound fully cooked smoked boneless ham (bake uncovered for 1 hour and 15 minutes)

smoked ham that is not fully cooked (bake covered approx. 30 minutes for each pound)

Heat oven to 325 degrees. Line shallow roasting pan with foil. Place ham, cut side down, on rack in pan. Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so tip is in the thickest part of ham and does not touch bone.

Bake uncovered for a fully cooked ham, covered for a ham not fully cooked.

Once the ham reaches 140 degrees remove from oven and cut off fat and glaze. Return to the oven, uncovered for 30 to 45 more minutes or until 160 degrees.

Cover ham loosely with foil and let stand 10-15 minutes for easier carving.

1/3 cup maple-flavored syrup

1/2 teaspoon ground mustard

1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

Dash of ground nutmeg

Mix ingredients and brush over ham during the last 30 minutes of baking.


After ham reaches 135-140 degrees, remove from oven to prepare to glaze

Return to oven, uncovered to finish baking.

Remove ham from oven and cover loosely with foil for 10-15 minutes.

Growing up in California, my family always got together for a picnic on Easter. My Aunt Leona always made sure I had an Easter treat. We had so much fun enjoying the beautiful outdoors and the wonderful picnic our mother’s prepared.

As much as I loved those times, my favorite picnics were the ones I had with my little brother under the Mulberry tree in our backyard.

And the ride wasn’t too far from the back door to the Mulberry tree

I love Ham….it’s my favorite meat. Your Ham looks very delicious. In fact, that will make some splendid sandwiches for leftovers. You shouldn’t have to cook now for at least a week!
Tell Mark I said that! Happy Easter!
