Ham Glaze

This ham glaze is one that I have used for a couple years. I personally never buy a fresh ham, as the amount of work seems intimidating to me. I have bought the Honey Spiral Sliced Ham from Aldi for many years and I always get compliments on it. This ham was around $20 to purchase, It would feed at least 25 people if not more. I do not use the ham glaze packet that comes with, but I make my own which you will find in a full and printable format below. This ham glaze is one that I have used for a couple years. This ham recipe is easy and delicious and everyone will love.

PreSliced and PreCooked

The ham I get at Aldi is pre cooked and spiral sliced. This is a very easy ham for someone to make who is a beginner. This ham already has a lot of flavor but I cook mine a few ways to make it even more great. I make this ham two ways. I put it in my crockpot with a can of root beer and a can of crushed pineapples and then wrap the top with foil. Cook on low for 6 hours. At the end I place it on a sheet pan, pour the ham glaze recipe over it and bake it at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and broil for 5 minutes at the end. I also make the ham in the oven in a roasting pan, add the root beer and the pineapple, cover in foil and bake at 350 for 1 hour to 90 minutes, then uncover, glaze, bake and broil.

Simmer Down Now

When the Ham is done warming, I pour the glaze and ham drippings into a sauce pan and simmer it down for about 30 minutes and serve it along side the ham slices along with some Hawaiian Rolls,
