Honey Glazed Ham

So head to the store and grab these simple ingredients! You won’t regret it. Oh, did I mention that this recipe is one that has been passed down to me? Well, it has! And I’m finally sharing it with YOU!

The ham glaze alone is one that I might boastingly consider the best ham glaze ever. Brown Sugar, orange juice, and spices like nutmeg are really what help to round out the ham and make it a winning dish. 

Honey Glazed Ham

For those of us with kids and busy lives, the long cooking time is usually a big deterrent for not wanting to make ham outside the obligatory holidays. But with this Instant Pot recipe, you can have a delicious spiral-cut ham on the table in no time. Thus, taking away the negatives and giving us all positives for eating more ham!

Something that I love about ham recipes is that there are always leftovers! You can repurpose the leftovers in a variety of ways. How about this Split Pea Soup Recipe given to me by my boys grandmother. It’s a perfect tried and true recipe. Chopping up the leftover cooked ham and turning it into a ham tetrazzini is a great way to totally change up the menu.

How to glaze a ham?

Glazing a ham is a great way to bring additional flavor into the meat. It’s also very simple to add a glaze to ham. The glaze adds a nice crust on the outside of the ham to enrich the flavors and add sweetness. This will help enrich the flavors of the meat, not only on the outside but inside too.

You can glaze a ham by using a turkey baster and pouring the homemade glaze over the top of the ham, or spooning it on. You can also use a pastry brush and brush it on. The method you choose it up to you so pick the one you feel most comfortable with.
