Glazes for your Ham


There are so many ways that you can add that extra flavour to your Christmas ham. Here are a few you can try for the season.

Pineapple Glazed Ham

You will need:

2 cups 100 per cent

pineapple juice

1/4 cup honey

2 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp mustard{{more}}


Preheat oven to 325°. Place ham into large baking dish and cover with foil. In small saucepan over medium heat; cook pineapple juice 25 minutes, while stirring frequently. Juice should reduce by half. Add honey, sugar and mustard. Cook 5-8 minutes, while constantly stirring. Once glaze has thickened to a syrup consistency, remove from heat. Bake ham for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Glaze ham 20 minutes before cooking is complete.

Honey Glazed Ham

You will need:

1/4 cup whole cloves

1/4 cup dark corn syrup

2 cups honey

2/3 cup butter


Preheat oven to 325°. Score ham, and stud with the whole cloves. Place ham in foil lined pan. In a small pot on low, heat the corn syrup, honey and butter. Keep glaze warm while baking ham. Brush glaze over ham and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Baste ham every 10 to 15 minutes with the honey glaze. During the last 4 to 5 minutes of baking, turn on broiler to caramelize the glaze.

BBQ Glazed Ham

You will need:

1/2 cup mustard

1/4 to 1/2 cup brown sugar

1 cup BBQ sauce of your choice


Cut your ham in a diamond hatch pattern all over to allow the flavour to penetrate the fat layer. Combine ingredients and brush ham liberally; get it in all the cracks and crannies. Place in a baking pan with sides and cover tightly with foil. Bake at 325° for 2 hours, brushing often to let glaze caramelize.
