It's nice to display a glazed ham on your holiday table

GLAZED HAM - Would you like a recipe for how to make glazed ham well cooked? If yes, then this is the recipe for you. This pork recipe for a sweet and savory glazed ham is really nice for special occasions such as Christmas day. It feels special to present meat like this on the table for the family. Be sure that you have many people to serve the glazed ham to or consider freezing leftovers.

There are various examples for what you can do with ham leftovers such as cooking ham fettuccine or making ham sandwiches.

  • Brown sugar,
  • honey
  • and butter

are all good for using as the glaze on your glazed ham. A combination of the three works well. It is what I use. The glazed ham tastes great.

Brown sugar, honey and butter can be used to glaze the ham.

Cooking ham for a 1/2 hour per pound of meat will make it very well done

Personally, I like to cook a very well done ham that still remains moist and tender. As a general rule, cooking for 1/2 hour per pound of meat is good. A 6 pound ham would need to cook for 3 hours. That is at 350 degrees in a preheated oven. I use a cured bone in ham.

for the ham glaze, pictured above, I stir half a stick of melted sweet cream butter (not margarine or butter substitute), 2 teaspoons of brown sugar and just a few drops of honey together. I also add just a teaspoon of minced garlic to this mix.

Use a brand new or well cleaned brush to glaze the ham frequently throughout the cooking process (1-2x per hour of a 3 hr cooking time is good). This means removing the pan from the oven each time to do the glaze and then place it back in the oven.

Garnishing a ham with cloves or another type of garnish

Traditionally, cloves can be used to garnish a ham. You can easily add this item to your grocery list and pick it up at the supermarket when you are planning to cook the ham. If it is a spice that you frequently keep on hand in your pantry anyway, that's good too.

When I realized that I had no cloves I did not run out to the store however. I had too much cooking of various dishes to do that day ( Christmas of last year) so I simply sprinkled some parsley on top.

Oh, well. Nevertheless, the ham was still a hit and very delicious.

Cloves are often used as garnish on top of a ham. You can also try using parsley to sprinkle on top of the glazed ham, like I did.

      Oh my goodness! I should not have peeked in here just now -- I am drooling! We did not serve ham this past Christmas but I think I just may serve it to celebrate the New Year. Thanks for sharing this yummy idea!
