Not bragging (may be a tad bit yes ) but my boyfriend made this ammmazing, moist, crusty and flavorful honey glazed ham for our holiday party this weekend and OMFG, it was Minnnnd. Blowing!
I will give credits to allrecipes for sure and more than the recipes, its the reviews that are a bomb there. This recipe is a mix of tips and tricks from reviews of over half a dozen recipes and doesn’t really follow one single recipe.
Here is what he did…
He whisked brown sugar, honey, dijon mustard, vinegar, black pepper, worcester sauce and cayenne in a bowl until glaze has a thick smooth consistency.
Poured water, pineapple juice, star anice and cloves into the bottom of the roasting pan.
Placed roasting rack into the pan over the liquid and ham on rack
Bake ham in preheated oven for 20 minutes to begin with. Then brushed glaze all over ham. He continued baking ham, brushing glaze on every 20 minutes, until glaze is deep golden and ham is heated through to internal temperature of 130 degrees F, about 2 1/2 hours.
Voila!!! Best ham of your life!!!!
I would never ever fight in line for overpriced Honey Baked ham ever. ??♀️

I would never fight in line and shell out precious moola at Honey Baked Ham ever again. This recipe is the answer to the best ham for half the price.
- 8 lb Cooked ham
- 1 can pineapple juice
- Enough water to fill 1 inch at the bottom of the pan
- 4 star anice
- 2 tbsp cloves
- For the glaze:
- 2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup good quality honey
- 4 tbsp dijon mustard
- 4 tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 tsp worcester sauce
- 3 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tsp cayenne
- Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees F
- Whisk brown sugar, honey, dijon mustard, vinegar, black pepper, worcester sauce and cayenne in a bowl until glaze has a thick smooth consistency.
- Pour water, pineapple juice, star anice and cloves into the bottom of the roasting pan.
- Place roasting rack into the pan over the liquid. Place ham on rack.
- Bake ham in preheated oven for 20 minutes.
- Brush glaze all over ham. Continue baking ham, brushing glaze on every 20 minutes, until glaze is deep golden and ham is heated through. About 2 1/2 hours (roughly 15 minutes per pound of ham). An instant thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F.
- Use a kitchen torch to sear the ham until crisp and caramelized. About 2-5 minutes. If you don’t have a torch, just use broiler setting in your oven for about couple of minutes.
