Every juicy slice of meat gets treated with this delicious glaze that soaks in and caramelizes around the edges as the ham heats in the oven.
When it comes to the best ham glaze recipe, I find that a sweet, spiced, and slightly citrusy approach is the perfect balance with the smoky, salty flavor of ham.
Most hams are already precooked for you, and all you need to do is heat it up. But since it's a big piece of meat with a bone in the center, it still takes a while.
We cook our ham at 350F until it reaches an internal temperature of 40F. This usually takes about 10-14 minutes per pound, so plan on around 2 hours of cooking time for this recipe. It will dry out if you overcook it!
How to prep ham for the brown sugar glaze: This recipe is super simple and doesn't require a lot of prep. Make sure your ham is at room temperature to help the ham cook evenly. Then I'd glaze the ham right at the start of the cooking process and continue glazing it about every thirty minutes.
Storing Brown Sugar Glaze Ham: If you’re lucky, you will have leftovers to enjoy the next day! Keep the ham in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days. You can freeze the ham in plastic wrap or a freezer bag, tightly covered with foil. For the best flavor and quality, store in the freezer for up to 2 months.
