Units Scale
  • 1 (10 to 12 lb) bone-in ham

Honey Mustard Glaze:

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp mustard
  • 1/4 cup water


  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.

Baking the Ham:

  1. Place the bone-in ham in a roasting pan.
  2. Using a sharp knife, score the the top of the ham diagonally, with the lines about 1 inch apart (don’t score too deep…the lines should really only be a 1/4 inch deep). See pictures.
  3. Add about 1/2 cup water to the bottom of the roasting pan.
  4. Cover the ham with tin foil and bake for approximately 1 1/2 hours.

Making the Glaze:

  1. While the ham is baking make the glaze. In a saucepan over low-medium heat, combine the glaze ingredients and cook until the sugar dissolves. Do not boil.

Adding the Glaze:

  1. After the 1 1/2 hours, take the ham out of the oven, and drizzle the glaze all over the top of the ham, and in all the crevices.
  2. Remove the tin foil, and continue baking for about 30 minutes.
  3. Continue to brush the ham with glaze that has dripped to the bottom of the pan.
  4. When the ham is done baking, remove it from the oven and let it rest for about 15 minutes before carving.
