Strawberry Glazed Spiral Ham

Print Friendly Version Print Friendly Version

Sticky, fruity, deliciousness is the best way to describe this knock-out glazed ham. During the holiday season, we stock up and buy ham on sale to stick in the freezer. We love having it on hand because it’s really the perfect meat to feed a crowd. It’s a protein that you can either dress up for a special occasion or dress down for a casual BBQ. We always have ham during the holidays, but it’s also become a favorite year-round “potluck” dish for us. The oven does all the work, all we have to do is make the glaze.

For your next cookout, there’s no need for burgers and dogs. Ham is served perfectly on fresh baked rolls.

Ingredients:Strawberry Glazed Spiral Ham

  • 1 (10-pound) cooked bone-in spiral cut ham – we like Smithfield
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup strawberry all fruit spread
  • 1/3 cup dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 325. Put the ham, cut side down, into a roasting pan or large baking dish. Add 1 1/2 cups of water and cover with foil. Bake for 1 hour. With 20 minutes remaining, make the glaze by whisking all of the remaining ingredients together in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Allow the glaze to come to a low simmer and reduce heat to low. Remove the foil and brush the ham with the glaze. Make sure to get the glaze into all the little cracks around the spiral. Bake the ham, uncovered for another hour, basting again every 15 minutes. Remove the ham from the oven when an internal temperature of 140 degrees F is reached on an instant-read thermometer. Transfer the ham to a carving board and let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Baste it one last time. Pour the remaining glaze into a small dipping bowl.

Thinly slice the ham and arrange it on a serving platter. Serve with toasted rolls and extra glaze on the side.
