When Christmas rolls around, I always start thinking about ham. I love those spiral sliced hams that you can get at most local grocery stores. They have a decadent flavor that just really makes my mouth water.

For years, I have always just stuck with using the spice pack that comes with the ham for the glaze portion, but a couple of years ago, I started making my own glaze to suite my taste buds. The powdered glaze from the pack just had a flavor that I wasn’t really hyped up about, so I created the glaze recipe below.

This holiday season, if you make any kind of ham–you have to make this one!

Baked Ham with Pineapple Honey Spice Glaze


  • 1 spiral sliced ham
  • 1 1/4 cups packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 large orange, juiced and zested
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • Pineapple rings for decoration


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place ham in a roasting pan.
  2. In a pot, combine brown sugar, pineapple juice, honey, orange juice, orange zest, Dijon mustard, and ground cloves. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Place pineapple rings on ham. Bake ham in the oven uncovered for 2 hours. During the cooking process, brush ham with glaze every thirty minutes for 2 hours. During the last 30 minutes brush the ham with glaze every 10 minutes.
  4. Serve ham alongside your favorite holiday sides.
