 Orange Honey Spiral Glazed Ham

Are you scrambling for the perfect entree for your Easter celebration?  Traditionally, our family always opts for a ham with all of our favorite sides.  Trust me this recipe for Orange Honey Spiral Glazed Ham looks and smells divine and tastes beyond amazing.  Best of all, before you know it, your ham will be baking in the oven, allowing you time to celebrate with family and friends.
Begin with a spiral cut ham.
Mix up the delicious glaze, and you may want to double it so you can allow others to spoon it over their ham slices.
Lay your ham on two sheets of heavy foil.  Spoon glaze between slices of ham.  Pour remaining glaze over the ham and wrap tightly.  Bake as directed in a roasting pan.
Orange-Honey Spiral Glazed Ham
If you're ready for a heavenly spiral-cut holiday ham, here it is. It's easy to make the delicious glaze and the ham stays moist and tender.
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup honey
  • Zest and juice of two oranges*
  • 4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 (10 pound) bone-in half spiral ham
  1. Heat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl, mix all of the glaze ingredients together.
  3. Place the ham, (cut side down), in the middle of two sheets of heavy duty aluminum. Use enough to completely enclose the ham.
  4. Pour or brush the glaze over the ham, working it in a little between the slices.
  5. Tightly wrap the ham up and place it on a rack in a roasting pan. Fill the pan with about an inch of water and roast in the oven until the internal temperature reaches 140 degrees, about 20 minutes per pound. For a 10 pound ham plan on approximately 2-1/2 hours.
  6. Let the ham rest for about 10 minutes before serving.
Without an orange in sight, I used the rind and juice from 2 tangelos and the glaze was perfectly delicious.
You may want to pair it with yummy Curried Fruit, my go-to showy side I always serve with ham.
Happy Easter All!

    I need to find out if my mom saw this one. It looks delicious! (She’s in charge of the Easter ham, don’tcha know!)

    Renee, I love your ham glaze, it sounds just delish but what’s amazing to me is the curried fruit! My mom started serving this with ham many years ago and my sisters and I have all have continued this tradition, You’re right – it is the PERFECT partner for ham! We also serve a potatoes au gratin with this, another wonderful pairing! Not exactly dieter’s delight but deliciously delightful! 🙂

    I love this recipe. It sounds so good! I love pumpkin pie spice and buy it when it’s seasonal at Trader Joe’s. Love it in yogurt and I’d already given thought to how I’d use the entire bottle but now I know that it will be perfect baked on ham!
