Apricot-glazed Ham

Whether for a special feast or just because, this glazed ham is amazing and very simple. Pair with roasted potatoes and a salad or some veggies and you’re in business. I made this recipe with a 6 pound ham. If yours is bigger, adjust the amount of glaze accordingly. The dipping sauce using the ham juices and a little corn starch is fantastic served with the ham. The ham is also especially good reheated. Just the roast ham slices for about 15 minutes in the oven at 400 F.


1/3 cup apricot jam
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
pinch of ground cloves (optional)

1 tablespoon corn starch if making dipping sauce

Step 1

Preheat oven to 325°F.

Step 2

Place ham cut side down on a piece of aluminum foil in a baking pan.

Step 3

Mix glaze ingredients and generously brush onto the outside of the ham, reserving any left-overs.

Step 4

Fold foil up slightly so juices will collect in the foil. Bake for about 60-90 minutes.


Step 5 (optional dipping sauce)

In a sauce pan, mix a tablespoon of corn starch with a little water until dissolved. Whisk in the collected ham juices along with any left-over glaze and heat the resulting gravy until bubbly and thickened.
