Honey Baked Ham


prep 0:15       total 1:45


12 servings



1 (10) ready-to-eat ham, bone included
3 tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp. cinnamon
1-1/2 cup apple juice


Remove the layer of skin from ham, leaving a thin layer of fat to keep the meat juicy while baking. Score the surface of the ham in a diamond pattern, without cutting into the meat. Place a whole clove in the center of half the diamonds. Place ham in roasting pan and brush top with mustard. Combine sugar, honey and cinnamon; heat over medium temperature, about 2 minutes until mixture will pour, but not thin. Spread over ham. Pour apple juice in bottom of roasting and bake at 325°F for 1-1/2 hours. Baste every half hour using juices in the pan.

The ham turned out great. I substituted pineapple juice for the apple juice and added pinapple chunks to the pan with the ham before baking.

I am not in charge of any kitchen by any means but i do try my hand when ever i can. Christmas eve i made two hams with the pineapple substitute and all the female relatives in my family secretly ask me for the recipe.
