Yummy Recipe Thursday! (Sweet Glazed Holiday Ham)

Hello again and welcome to a Yummy Recipe Thursday posting. Today marks the midway point between Thanksgiving and Christmas so I figured it was as good a day as any to have a recipe post. I intend to return to the normal Wednesday posting schedule next week but it’s a busy time of year so we’ll just see what happens. Today I bring you a wonderful recipe for a holiday ham that’s so delicious and really easy. It’s actually so easy that even a first-timer couldn’t go wrong using this recipe for their ham. This ham turns out so moist and the sweet glaze makes the flavor of the ham just out of this world. If you don’t have a rack to go in your roasting pan, just put the ham directly into the roasting pan and it’ll turn out fine. Also, if you have pineapple chunks instead of rings you can use 1 chunk and 1 cherry per toothpick and just put them all of the ham. Give this a try and let me know your thoughts in the comments below. As always, be sure to follow @RecipeBlogger on Twitter if you aren’t already so you don’t miss a single new recipe post.

Sweet Glazed Holiday Ham

  • 1 (10 lb) Fully-Cooked, Bone-In Ham
  • 4 cups Boiling Water, or as needed
  • 1 cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Dry Mustard Powder
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 1 tsp Fresh Lemon Juice, or as needed
  • 1 (20 oz) can Pineapple Rings, drained
  • 1 (10 oz) jar Maraschino Cherries, drained
  • Toothpicks

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C); place the ham on a rack set in a roasting pan and carefully pour about 1/2 inch of boiling water into the pan beneath the ham.
2. Bake the ham in the preheated oven for about 2 hours, or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat (do not touch the bone) reads at least 140 degrees F (60 degrees C.)
3. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C.).
4. In a bowl, mix together the brown sugar, flour, dry mustard, honey, and lemon juice as needed to make a thick, smooth paste; brush the ham generously with the glaze.
5. Skewer 1 maraschino cherry per toothpick; place the pineapple rings all over the ham using the skewered cherries in the middle of the pineapple rings to hold them in place.
6. Return the ham to the oven and roast for 15 minutes; baste the ham and fruit with the glaze and juices that have collected in the bottom of the pan.
7. Return the ham to the oven and roast for an additional 15 minutes; let the ham rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing.
