Make It Easy

What is Ham Glaze Made Of?
This recipe uses simple ingredients that you most likely have in your pantry to make a sweet glaze that the entire family will love. If by chance you’re missing any of these ingredients, check out my substitutions list below.
- brown sugar
- orange juice
I always try to include this section as I know sometimes we forget we’re missing something in our pantry. As always, try to stick to the original recipe if possible.
- If you don’t have orange juice, you can use pineapple juice instead. You can even add some additional pineapple chunks in it too! Who else loves the taste of ham and pineapple?
- Don’t have honey? You can use pure maple syrup instead.
How Long to Bake a Ham?
The rule I use to making ham is cooking it 10 minutes per pound in the oven at 350 degrees. This is the suggestion if your’e starting with a fully cooked ham.
To keep it juicy, I recommend always cooking ham cut side down so it soaks up all the natural juices. This makes it really yummy!
You can also make ham in the slow cooker, which makes a really juicy ham!
