How Long Does It Take to Cook a Spiral Ham

How Long Does It Take to Cook a Spiral Ham

  • Author: Bobby


The yield is 12 servings


  • 1 (8-10 lb) bone-in spiral ham
  • 1/2 cup of apricot jam
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tablespoon of grounded red pepper
  • 1 lemon sliced thin
  • 1/4 cup of honey


  1. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Place the ham cut side down in a roasting pan. Place in a baking bag or tightly wrap in foil.
  3. Bake the ham at 275° for 12-15 minutes per pound, depending on the size of the ham. (It takes about 2 hours)
  4. Brown sugar, honey, orange juice, pineapple juice, and Dijon mustard should all be combined in a small saucepan. Whisk well and cook on low for 8-10 minutes, stirring frequently, until it reduces and thickens into a glaze.
  5. Remove the ham from the oven 15 minutes before it is done and brush it with the glaze.
  6. Cook the ham for the final 15 minutes, uncovered.
