  • Conventional Oven
  • Large Roasting Pan



  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Place ham in a roasting pan lined with foil or roasting pan liner (see tips above). Set aside.

  • In a small saucepan, combine honey, brown sugar, butter, brown mustard, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and paprika. Heat over medium-low heat until sugar is just dissolved (you do not need to bring it to a boil). 
    Cooking sauce that will be basted onto the ham
  • Baste ham with about 1/3 of the honey mixture. Be sure to get in between all the slices.

  • Cover and bake at 200-degrees for 5 hours, basting a second time halfway through using half of the remaining honey mixture.

  • Remove ham from oven and set oven to "broil". While oven is getting to temperature, baste ham one last time using remaining mixture. Be sure to get a nice even coating over the top.

  • Place ham, uncovered, back in the oven. Watch it closely! When the glaze starts to caramelize and bubble up, remove ham from oven. Allow ham to rest for 5 minutes and serve!
