Honey Glazed Ham

Posted on


  • ▢ 8 lb bone-in spiral sliced half ham
  • ▢ 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • ▢ 3 Tbsp honey
  • ▢ 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • ▢ 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
  • ▢ 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • ▢ 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ▢ 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • ▢ 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • ▢ 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • ▢ 1/4 tsp paprika
  • ▢ pinch of allspice


  • Trim ham if needed, then place in slow cooker.  Combine melted butter and honey, then massage over ham, getting in between the slices a little.  Cover and cook on LOW 4-5 hours.
  • At the end of the cooking time, preheat broiler to HIGH, and line a roasting pan with heavy duty aluminum foil.  
  • Combine sugar, seasoned salt, onion powder, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground ginger, ground cloves, paprika and allspice in a small bowl.  Pat half of the sugar mixture over the top of the ham.
  • Broil for several minutes, until bubbly and caramelized, then remove from oven.
  • To a small saucepan, add remaining sugar mixture.  Add 3 Tbsp of either water or ham juices from bottom of the slow cooker. A combination of water/ham juice and bourbon is a nice alternative!  Stir, and heat to a boil.  Boil for about a minute, then remove from heat.
  • Brush or pour glaze over the ham, then broil again for a minute or two (careful… don’t let it burn!).  Remove from oven and let ham rest for 5-10 minutes. 
  • Serve warm or cold and enjoy!
