Glazed Spiral Ham (12 Servings)

  • Author: Bobby



This recipe uses an 8 to 10-pound ham, whole cured and smoked with the bone in.

  • 1 (8 to 10-lb.) smoked, bone-in ham
  • ½ cup of apricot jam
  • ¼ cup of light brown sugar
  • Two tablespoons of bourbon (optional)
  • One tablespoon of Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes


  1. Remove the ham from the refrigerator and set it aside for 1 hour to reach room temperature.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place a rack in a big roasting pan and cover it with foil. Place the ham on the foil on the rack and pour 2 cups of water in the bottom of the roasting pan.
  3. Combine the jam, brown sugar, bourbon, Dijon, and red pepper flakes in a small mixing basin. Brush the ham with some glazes and roast it for 12 to 2 hours, basting every 30 minutes with more glaze until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest section reads 140°.
  4. Allow 15 minutes for resting before cutting.
