Glazed Ham (Oven or Crock Pot!)

This glazed ham recipe is brushed with honey butter and baked in the oven or the Crock Pot before being brushed with a sweet pineapple brown sugar glaze!

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup pineapple juice, see notes
  • 4 Tablespoon Butter, melted
  • 2 Tablespoons Honey
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon mustard powder

Glaze

  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground clove
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Pinch allspice
  • Pinch ground ginger

Instructions

  • Note: These instructions are for a ham that has already been cooked/smoked, which is marked as such on the label.
  • Make room for the roasting pan in the oven, you may need to move a rack down one notch. Preheat oven to 275 degrees.
  • Pour the pineapple juice on the bottom of the roasting pan and place a roasting rack on top.
  • Rinse the ham and pat it dry. Place it on the top of the rack.
  • Combine 4 Tablespoons Melted butter, 2 Tablespoons honey, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, ½ teaspoon garlic powder, and ½ teaspoon mustard powder. Brush it over the top of the ham and into the crevices of the slices.
  • Cover the pan loosely with foil, making sure to seal the edges around the pan. Bake for 15 minutes per pound of ham. (8 pounds = 2 hours.)
  • Combine the glaze ingredients while the ham bakes and set it aside.
  • Remove the ham from the oven. Take the foil and place it on a heat-safe surface. Place the rack with the ham on top of the foil. Sprinkle half of the sugar glaze mixture over the top of the ham.
  • Transfer the roasting pan (with drippings) to the stove and stir in remaining sugar glaze ingredients. Whisk to combine. Bring it to a boil, then reduce to simmer. Whisk continuously and let it bubble gently until desired thickness is obtained. Remove from heat and transfer the glaze to a heat-safe bowl.
  • Place the rack with the ham back in the roasting pan.
  • Brush desired amount of glaze over the ham, you don’t have to use it all.
  • Broil at 450 for up to 5 minutes to allow the top to caramelize, watch it carefully so it doesn’t burn. (Alternatively, you can use a heating gun to caramelize the top, link in notes.)
  • Serve with side dishes of choice, including potato salad, mashed potatoes, twice baked potato casserole, and corn casserole.
  • Have leftovers? Check out all of my ham recipes here.

Notes

I am able to obtain ¼ cup pineapple juice from an 8 oz. can of crushed pineapple. A sieve helps with this. If needed, you could use chicken broth instead. 

The ham is done when the a meat thermometer reads 140 degrees when inserted into the thickest part.

Crock Pot Method: Cook on low for 4-5 hours. Transfer to a foil-lined baking sheet or roasting pan to broil at the end once glaze is added. You’ll need a 7-8 quart Crock Pot to fit an 8-9 lb. ham.
