Wowza. It's always been hard to decide on our favorite holiday ham, but the contest has been won - Apricot Raspberry Glazed Ham is always a crowd-favorite!
This family-favorite holiday ham is a perfect combination of sweet and savory. Apricot and Raspberry preserves, mixed with spicy Dijon mustard and a touch of brown sugar create the absolute best glaze I have ever made! We enjoyed this so much at Christmas that I had numerous requests to make again for our New Year's dinner, and Easter, and special birthday dinners!
And it doesn't get any easier to make! Combine the glaze ingredients, spread on top of the baking ham at 20 minute intervals, and you will have the thickest, most delicious glaze ever! I start with a cup of fresh apple cider with the ham, and the combination of sweet and savory will knock your socks off!
My gang is pretty much split between a spiral honey-baked ham and a more traditional cottage-style ham, but this glaze works perfectly on both! My personal opinion is that a spiral ham dries out more when you are warming it up, and my family just isn't too crazy about cold ham, so this is a wonderful option!
They were scraping the bottom of the serving platter and pan for more glaze - and licking their fingers!
This is one of the prettiest glazed hams that I have ever served - and absolutely one of the most delicious! So moist and flavorful!
Hope that you enjoy our family-favorite recipe!
10 lbs. spiral cut ham or 4-6 lbs. smoked ham (without bone)
