Baked Honey Ham (Holiday Meal Collection)

honey-ham

Ham, Turkey, pork roast and prime rib are probably a top served choice for the American holiday foodies. I have always been guided by the desire of my spouse as she is my number one food fan. I can make thousands of recipes and meal combinations. I just let her guide the meals that are shared. She loves ham and here I will make a Baked Honey Ham for our holiday. Let’s make a baked honey ham.

I will buy a cured, smoked ham and apply a marinade that I make special for the ham. I will share my holiday marinade with you so you can apply and bake your favorite ham on the holidays.

Chef Gosselin Honey Ham Glaze

1 cup honey

1/2 cup orange marmaladeĀ jam

1 tsp dijon mustard

1/4 cup whole cloves

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup butter (softened)

5-8 pound cured, smoked ham

 

Score the ham with your boning knife as to leave a nice grid of one inch squares all over the surface of the ham about 1/2 inch deep cut.

Stud the whole cloves into the slits on the ham. I press the spike of the clove into the ham flesh.

Place all the remaining ingredients into a small sauce panĀ and use your whisk (med heat ) to nicely blend the thick sugary ingredients into your glaze

Constantly whisk as you bring the glaze to a light boil. (Do not allow it to burn)

Set aside to cool

Bake ham uncovered in a preheated 325F oven for 1 hour

Remove and baste with glaze

Cover with foil and return to oven

Repeat basting every ten min for about 5 additional bastings (continue to keep covered with foil as you return the ham to over)

Remove ham and allow to rest for 5 min

Carve and plate

WOW…. what a powerful item to bring to the table on a holiday!
