Total time: 1 hour 10 minutes | Serves 10 to 12
  • 2 cups honey
  • 2 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 1 (5- to 6-pound) cooked ham, bone in, or 1 (3- to 4-pound) boneless ham

Step 1Combine honey, brown sugar, vinegar, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. Bake bone-in ham at 350 degrees 1 hour to heat through, basting with honey sauce occasionally. Place in broiler to glaze top.

Step 2To cook boneless ham, slice halfway through at 1/4-inch intervals, then tie with string. Place in roasting pan. Heat honey sauce and pour over ham to marinate 24 hours before baking. Then bake at 350 degrees 1 hour or until heated through. Glaze top under broiler, if desired.
