Christmas Ham, Easy and Quick

Christmas ham

When it comes to Christmas, ham is one of the more recognizable foods.  Getting a good ham can be difficult, and so can prepping it.  Luckily, I found a recipe online that is easy to make, serves fifteen and takes less than 2 hours to prep altogether.



1 5-pound ready-to-eat ham

¼ cup whole cloves

¼ cup dark corn syrup

2 cups honey

⅔ cups butter



Preheat oven to 325 degrees F

Score ham, and stud with whole cloves.

Place ham in foil-lined pan.

In the top half of a double boiler, heat the corn syrup, honey and butter.  Keep warm while baking ham.

Brush glaze over ham and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes in the preheated oven.  Baste ham every 10 to 15 minutes with the honey glaze.  During the last 4 to 5 minutes of baking, turn on broiler to caramelize the glaze.

Remove the ham from the oven and let sit for a few minutes before finally serving.
