"I created this glaze this past Thanksgiving holiday to cover a ham. My usual recipe called for brown sugar which I neglected to buy when doing my holiday grocery shopping. In my compromise, I created a glaze so amazing it would be a crime not to share it with the world."

  1. Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Place butter in a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave on low power until the butter is very soft and slightly melted. Pour in the corn syrup, honey, and molasses, and mix to a smooth, light brown mixture.
  3. Score the ham in a diamond pattern about 1/4 inch deep with a sharp knife. With a pastry brush, coat the ham generously with the glaze. Place the ham into a roasting pan, and cover with aluminum foil, taking care not to touch the ham with the foil.
  4. Bake the ham for 1 hour and 10 minutes (10 minutes per pound), removing the foil tent every 20 minutes to recoat the ham with glaze.
  5. Remove the foil tent, and turn on the oven's broiler. Broil the ham until the glaze is slightly darkened, about 10 minutes. Remove ham from oven, let stand about 10 minutes, then carve and serve.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • If your ham is a spiral cut, there is no need for to score the meat unless you prefer the look of a "diamond" cut ham.

Wonderfull we loved it. I soke my ham 24 hr in ginger ale so I did not add a thing.

It's pretty good! I wish it would have thickened up a bit and stuck to the ham better. Overall, a really nice taste though.

Yummy! I used a hand full of brown sugar instead of molasses because I do not keep molasses on hand. Everyone loved it

Putting this glaze on my ham made it the best ham ever. We ate the leftovers for breakfast lunch and dinner until it was gone. A+++++

I've tried this recipe several times and absolutely love it! I not only use it for holidays but also for Sunday dinners occasionally, and when guests come to visit. The only thing I've done diff...

Love this and have made it many times! If you are out of honey you can use pancake syrup. I did and it turned out fine.
