We decided to have a sliced picnic ham for Sunday dinner, & my husband was thoughtful enough to make the ham while I was sewing. He made up this glaze recipe, & let me tell you…he hit this one out of the park! This would be wonderful for a holiday ham.
1 cup brown sugar
3 – 4 tablespoons honey
2 generous tablespoons spicy brown mustard
3 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Ham – we used a 7 lb. thick sliced picnic ham


Mix all the ingredients together, taste & adjust the flavors as desired.

Separate the layers or slices of ham, & brush each with some of the glaze.  Re-assemble and place in a roasting pan, & brush the top & outside with the glaze, saving about half of it for later on.  Cover the roasting pan with the lid, and bake at 325 F for about 20 – 30 minutes per pound.   Remove from the oven, and drain off juices.  Brush with the remaining glaze, & place under the broiler for just a few minutes to thicken.
Recipe Notes:

Our ham ended up being almost fall apart tender, & the glaze was the perfect addition.  This was so much better than just the “sweet” coating to a ham, it was a fantastic blend of ingredients.  I never would have thought to put the glaze in between the slices, & not just on top.

My husband is a total “man’s man”…he can work on engines, weld, ride motorcycles, etc…but the man can cook, too!  How lucky am I?!
