This glaze definitely delivered! I had bought the honey baked ham before and was hoping to replicate it at home, and this recipe definitely got the job done! I am providing many details about what I did because I had never made a ham before and had to research a bit to figure out what to do to actually put this meal together. We bought a pre-cooked spiral-sliced, bone-in ham (about 7 lbs), and followed the directions on the package (put baby carrots, 1 can of pineapple juice, and the ham face-down in a foil lined roasting pan and baked at 325 degrees, 15 minutes of cooking per pound). I modified the recipe for the glaze as other reviewers have noted and halved it and we still had plenty of glaze- I heated 1 cup honey, 2 tbsp Dark Corn Syrup, 2 tbsp Dark Brown Sugar, 1/3 cup butter, and 1 tsp ground cloves in a saucepan on very low heat (as I didn't have a double-boiler). I then used a silicone baster brush to baste the ham every 15 minutes. After the last basting, I reduced the rest of the glaze by turning the heat up in the saucepan and stirring continuously until it thickened. Then, 5 minutes before I planned to take the ham out of the oven I poured the thickened glaze over the ham and took the lid off of the roasting pan to broil the ham. It came out so delicious, both the ham and the carrots were juicy and flavorful. I will definitely make this easy recipe again! Don't forget to Baste, Baste, Baste! Me and my husband are still eating the delicious leftovers!
