Roasted Bone-In Hams
When I bake a ham, I always use bone-in hams. I love the flavour and texture of these hams, they’re really easy to make, and they can feed a crowd which is great for big gatherings during the holidays! I also really like that I will have leftovers for sandwiches the next day, and possibly even dinner for one more night.
But one of the best things about making a bone-in ham is being able to score the crust and drizzle it with loads of delicious sweet glaze! Then after the baking time you have the most delicious ham with a sweet sticky flavourful crust, and enough glaze to smother the ham on your dinner plate. SO good.
It’s all about the ingredients!
For this glaze I used simple ingredients…butter, brown sugar, honey, mustard and orange juice. And it was the best glaze I’ve ever had! Sweet, flavourful and perfect with the saltiness of the baked ham. I’ll never not glaze a ham without this glaze recipe…it’s that good.
There’s even enough glaze that you will be able to serve the ham with it…everyone at the table will be spooning it over their plates…trust me.
So delicious and easy, and perfect for the holidays!
