How to Make a Sweet Glazed Ham for a Special Occasion

Yummy Yummy Time! Pig…Ham…a delicious meat, especially when you add a sweet glaze to it! Because Ham is the star of a ‘Ham Dinner’ you need to make sure the taste is flavorful. I love to score the ham and clove it and make sure that it will be nice and crisp on the outside while seriously moist on the inside. Don’t overcook it!

Serve up a great ham like this with Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Cheesy Macaroni & Cheese, Sausage & Apple Dressing, and don’t forget the cranberry sauce!

Delicious Rating: This ham turns out juicy and succulent. I love the glaze, it isn’t super sweet but just enough to where you need another piece! I kept a little extra in a small bowl to dip my ham in! Yes, I am horrible. Please give me your favorite Ham glaze easy recipes so I can try them out!

Baking a ham is a great way to celebrate the holidays or any special occasion. This Sweet Glazed Ham recipe is easy to follow, and it will give your holiday meal a delicious boost.

First, marinate the ham overnight in a mixture of pineapple juice, papaya juice, honey, and soy sauce. This will help to tenderize the meat and add flavor. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Next, place the ham in a baking dish and pour the marinade over top. Bake for 3 to 4 hours, basting every 30 minutes with the marinade. Be sure to turn the ham over once during cooking so that both sides get coated with the delicious glaze.

After 3 or 4 hours of baking, it’s time to prepare the glaze. Combine brown sugar, cornstarch, ground ginger, water and pineapple juice concentrate together in a small bowl and cook over low heat until thickened. Pour this glaze over top of the ham when it comes out of the oven – be sure not to let it drizzle down into your oven! Finally, let your ham rest for 10 minutes before slicing into perfect holiday-worthy pieces.
