  • 7 pound Ham bone-in
  • 1 cup Honey
  • 1/2 cup Brown sugar firmly packed
  • 1 teaspoon Ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Orange zest


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. 
  • Prepare fully-cooked ham by scoring the surface with diagonal cut, about 1/4 inch deep, going one way, and then repeat in the opposite direction to create a diamond pattern. Place a whole clovest where the line cross. 
  • In a bowl combine honey, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and orange zest.
  • Place bowl in microwave and cook for 15-30 seconds, depending on the strength of your microwave. When the honey is less thick and more liquid it is ready.
  • Place ham cut side down in a baking dish with just enough water to cover the bottom of the pan. 
  • Brush the ham glaze over your prepared ham and then cover ham with foil and place in the oven to bake. 
  • In the last 45 minutes of baking open the oven and remove the foil from the ham. Continue to cook the ham basting it with ham glaze every 15 minutes (heating glaze as necessary to make it easier to brush over ham).
  • When ham is warmed through it is ready to serve. Remove whole cloves before slicing. 
  • Enjoy!
