As if a glazed ham isn’t already delicious enough, this recipe takes it even further with 2 Easy Steps for Best Spiral Glazed Ham. Whether you’re hosting a holiday party or planning a special occasion dinner, a spiral glazed ham may be the perfect thing to serve! These 2 Easy Steps for Best Spiral Glazed Ham will deliver the best tasting and perfectly glazed ham every time.
Last weekend we hosted a holiday dinner party with friends and my husband wanted a ham on the menu. But not just any ham, an uncured spiral bone-in ham. Uncured hams cost a little more but it’s definitely worth it. And here’s why.
Reasons to buy uncured spiral ham:
No sodium nitrates or nitrites added. And no sodium phosphates.
No artificial preservatives or flavoring to embellish its color or flavor.
It’s already perfectly sliced for you, making it easy and convenient to serve.
You will get a natural tasting ham and one that is healthier for you.
What you need to make this 2 Easy Steps for Best Spiral Glazed Ham:
For starters, we use only 2 ingredients! We added 2 navel oranges and used an All-Natural, already made ham glaze that brings out the rich, savory flavors in this uncured ham.
No need to make your own glaze and no reason to use “the packet” that most hams come with.
The ingredients in this one jar for ham glaze is already done for you! It is a perfect blend of brown sugar, mustard seed, vinegar, pineapple juice, salt, spices, horseradish, and white wine.
Best part? All-natural ingredients with no fillers or artificial flavors.
WE LOVE THAT! And it’s sold at Harris Teeter, or you can easily get it on Amazon too – just click Here! …and they will ship it to you too!
2 Easy Steps for Best Glazed Ham
First thing is to remove the ham from its packaging and lay the ham with its flat-side down in a large roasting pan.
Then take 1 navel orange, squeeze the juice and pour the juice over the entire ham. Slice the second orange into several wedges and place them around the ham, as shown in the photo.
Next, begin to glaze the ham with this already-made brown sugar and spice ham glaze, and glaze the ham like you are frosting a cake, using the back of a large spoon or a small basting brush. Now your uncured ham is ready for the oven.
With 2 easy steps and only 5 minutes to prep a spiral ham before baking is truly a time-saver! Then bake the ham on low heat for only 15 minutes per pound.
With these 2 easy steps, you will notice a world of a difference in flavor and moisture. The truth is I don’t care for ham, because I always found conventionally cured hams to be too salty, and afterward I find myself drinking water all night long.
To my surprise, my husband was right to buy uncured ham. Such a huge difference!
This baked ham turned out better than we had expected! Everyone said it was the BEST tasting spiral glazed ham they have ever had! The flavors were wonderful and turned out to be SO AMAZING!
It was such a huge hit at our dinner party. Everyone LOVED it! Including ME!
Baking a spiral ham with just 2 easy steps, will save you precious time in the kitchen and leaves you time to enjoy your guests!
