how to glaze a ham

The basics: how to glaze a ham

  • Author: Jess Pryles



1 x 6 lb boneless ham

23 cups of water

1 portion of Savory Caramel Glaze (or other glaze)


  1. Preheat an oven to 350f.
  2. Line a roasting pan with foil for easy cleanup. Place a roasting rack on top of the foil, then your ham on the rack. Carefully pour the water into the bottom of the roasting pan to create steam and keep your ham moist. Place the entire pan into preheated oven.
  3. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes per pound (so for a 6 pound roast, you’re looking at a cook time of at least an hour and a half). If your ham begins to brown too much, rotate it to account for any hot spots, and lower the heat by 15-20f.
  4. About 20 minutes prior to the end of cooking time, begin glazing the ham but applying it with a silicon brush. Continue to glaze every 5 minutes until the ham is done. The ham is ready when a thermometer reads an internal temperature of 135-140f.
