Combine equal parts apricot jam and dijon mustard—and get your new favorite glaze for baked spiral ham. —Emma Laperruque
1 hour 45 minutes
8 to 12
(8-pound) bone-in, spiral-sliced, unglazed ham
In This Recipe
Heat the oven to 300°F. Add the ham to a roasting pan with a rack, then add about 1 cup water to the bottom of the baking dish (or enough to create a thin layer coating the bottom). Roast for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer reaches an internal temperature of 115°F.
Meanwhile, stir together the mustard and jam to create the glaze.
Once the ham has warmed through, remove from the oven and raise the heat to 375°F. Paint the ham with about 2/3 of the glaze. Cook for another 15 to 25 minutes, until the slices are crisped and the glaze is deeply browned. Remove from the oven and paint with the remaining glaze.
