Ingredients

  • 8 lb spiral cut ham
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • cooking spray
  • fresh herbs for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9" x 13" pan with cooking spray.
  • Place the ham cut side down in the pan and pour the honey over the top. Cover the pan with foil.
  • Bake for 2 hours or until a thermometer inserted into the ham registers 140 degrees F. Remove the ham from the oven and preheat the broiler.
  • Place the sugar, onion powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and smoked paprika in a medium sized pan along with 1/2 cup of drippings from the pan or water.
  • Stir to combine the sugar and liquid then bring to a boil. Boil for exactly one minute.
  • Pour half the glaze over the ham and place the ham under the broiler. Broil for 1-2 minutes or until glaze starts bubbling.
  • Remove the ham from the oven and pour the remaining glaze over the ham. Broil for 1-2 minutes more.
  • Remove the ham from the oven and separate the slices. Transfer the ham to a platter and serve, garnished with herbs if desired.
