How to make a nice glaze for a baked holiday ham

Updated on November 15, 2012

This article contains different types or kinds of glaze for your baked ham

The Christmas Day will never be complete without the luscious and mouthwatering holiday ham served in the table. You can bring out further the sweetness you linger for your ham with glazing techniques featured in this article.

Here are some tips and pointers on how to properly glaze a baked holiday ham:

About 30 minutes before the ham is cooked, take it out from the oven and get rid of the rind. Slice off the brown top fat and pour the remaining fat in the criss-cross diamonds with a sharp knife. Select the glaze (please see the different kinds of glaze below) you desire for your ham and spread it on the ham with a spoon.

Return the ham back into the oven and bake it once again at 375 degrees Fahrenheit, until the ham shows golden color. Baste it 2 to 3 times.

Here is a list of glaze to choose from:

Simple glaze

Inexpensive and very easy to prepare, you can make a simple glaze by virtue of combining ham honey, and maple syrup (or corn syrup) and sprinkle it with brown sugar.

Chef’s favorite

Heat a cup of pineapple preserve with the grated rind of one orange (optional) or tbsps of rum or a half cup of finely chopped walnuts. Spoon the glaze over ham. The heated jam can also be used as nice glaze too.

Scotch glaze

Heat a cup of bitter oranges marmalade with 3 tbsps of orange juice or Scotch whiskey and half cup of brown sugar. Spoon the glaze over ham.

Buffet-style glaze

Combine and heat a cup of pineapple preserves, 3 tbsps of cider vinegar, a quarter cup of corn syrup and a teaspoonful of ground ginger. Spoon the glaze over ham.

Delicatessen special

To create this one of a kind glaze, combine and heat together a c cup of brown sugar and half cup liquid from sweet pickle or a quarter cup of ginger ale or cola. Spoon the glaze over ham.
