Foodie: Best Ever Glazed Spiral Ham

Happy Easter everyone and to our good friends at Delish.

I am grateful for the resurrection message in all our lives. My thoughts and prayers are with DMX and his family at the moment.

Glazed Ham is a holiday favorite for many families and making it is easier than you thought. I am gonna try and make it sometime this week.


1 (8 to 10-lb.) whole cured, smoked, bone-in ham

1/2 c. apricot jam

1/4 c. light brown sugar

2 tbsp. bourbon (optional)

1 tbsp. Dijon mustard

1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes 


  1. Remove ham from refrigerator and let sit at room temperature for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. Place a rack in a large roasting pan and cover the rack with foil. Pour 2 cups water in the bottom of roasting pan and place ham on the foil on the rack.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together jam, brown sugar, bourbon, Dijon, and red pepper flakes. Brush ham with some of the glaze and roast, basting with more glaze every 30 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part reads 140°, about 1 ½ to 2 hours. 
  4. Let rest 15 minutes before carving.
