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,
- 1 cup of Brown Sugar
- 1/4 cup mayo
- 1/4 cup of yellow mustard
- 1/2 cup prune juice
- 1 tablespoon of black pepper (adjust to taste)
- 1 tablespoon of onion powder
- 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
- 1/2 tablespoon of chili powder
- Whisk all of the ingredients in a bowl. Let sit for 20 minutes and whisk again making sure your seasonings are dissolved.
- Heat your ham according to package directions.
- Pour your glaze over your ham making sure to get in between the slices. Bake for 30 minutes more uncovered.
- Broil for 5 minutes on high at the end to get some caramelization.
