Honey Baked Ham

Honey-Baked-Ham(570x380)-textThis is an awesome recipe for honey baked ham. The fruit juices are great for basting giving the ham a very flavorful taste. So moist, juicy, and down right flavorful. The smell coming from the oven while basting it with fruit juices is amazing. The only downside? You’ll always be asked to bring the ham!

Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 1 hour, 30 minutes
Total time: 1 hour 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 7 lb. spiral cut smoked home (fully cooked)
  • 1/2 cup pear juice (if you can’t find it in the juice section, you can often find it in the baby food area)
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1/2 cup honey

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Place ham cut end down in a large baking pan (uncovered)
  3. Bake ham for 15 minutes basting frequently with juices
  4. Mix brown sugar and honey together in a small bowl and brush mixture over ham and bake for another hour or until internal temperature reads 140 degrees Fahrenheit (if you find it is getting too brown, cover the ham with foil to prevent it from getting too dark)
  5. (Optional) If you want a true Honey Baked Ham just like the corporation, use a butane torch to caramelize the glaze to a crust.
  6. The ham is placed on top of a huge metal drum covered with foil to caramelize.
