Welcome to Taste and Tell Thursdays! Come link up your posts below!
If you are going to have Easter, you must have ham, right?
I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for nearly 6 years, and I’ve never posted a ham recipe. Plenty of recipes with ham, but not a recipe just for a ham. Maybe because it’s so simple that I never really thought to post one.
This is really so easy that it’s almost silly to post a recipe. But I think it’s delicious, and definitely worth ditching the glaze packet that comes with most hams. You most likely have all of the ingredients at home, and it takes minutes to put together. I love a ham with a sweet glaze, but I think my favorite part of this was the hint of heat from the cayenne pepper. I’m all about the sweet, but the heat just brings this all together for me.
And don’t worry – I’ve got plenty of ham leftover recipes coming soon as well!
- 1 spiral cut ham (mine was about 8.5 lbs)
- ½ cup honey
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
- ⅛ teaspoon cloves
- dash of ginger
- dash of allspice
- Preheat oven to 325F. Place the ham in an oven safe dish.
- In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. The mixture will be thick, but spread over the ham as well as possible. If the whole ham isn't covered, it's ok.
- Place the ham in the oven and baste every 10 minutes Cook for 1 hour, or until completely heated through.
