As the winter holidays are approaching, this Brown Sugar and Ginger Glazed Ham, with it’s juicy meat and sweet and spicy, caramelized sticky glaze, will be a delightful addition to your dinner table.

The ham I’ve used is already pre-smoked and cooked, all we need to do is to bring more flavor with this amazing glaze, that will make the ham with an irresistible golden brown and crispy exterior.

The glaze is made using brown sugar, honey and mustard, spiced up with cinnamon and cloves and with a good amount of fresh ginger, creating the best basting glaze you have ever made.

Serve this Brown Sugar and Ginger Glazed Ham with your favorite side dishes, we would recommend these mashed potatoe casserole, potato stacks or potato gratin and your favorite veggies. Hope you will try this out and enjoy!

  • 1/3 cup (70g) brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp (40g) honey
  • 2 tbsp (30g) Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp (30ml) apple cider vinegar

Instructions
 

  • Let the ham sit at room temperature for about 1 hour before baking.
  • Preheat the oven to 325F (160C).
  • Remove the rind of the ham, but make sure to leave the fat on.
  • With a sharp knife score 1 inch (2.5 cm) diamond pattern into the fat.
  • Place the ham into a 9 x 13 inch (23x33cm) pan, lined with parchment paper.
  • Add 1 cup of hot water into the pan and cook in the oven for 20 minutes.

  • Add garlic and remove from heat.
  • Remove the ham from the oven and baste with the brown sugar glaze.
  • Return to the oven and bake for about 20 minutes per pound (in this case for 1 hour), basting the ham every 15 minutes.

    I loved this Glazed Ham, thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I made it for the New Year’s party and everybody loved it! I had some trouble cooking the ginger glaze, I had to try 3 times until reach the right point. I found out that you have to put in a little bit of lemon juice and all will be good.
    Have a good day!!
