Honeybaked Ham’s Glaze

This is a little extra work, but it is 100% worth it! Why spend $80 on a ham when you can make one at home?!?!

Honeybaked Ham’s Glaze

1 cooked half ham, bone in (presliced)
1 cup sugar
1/4 t ground cinnamon
1/4 t ground nutmeg
1/4 t ground cloves
1/4 t paprika
1 dash ground ginger
1 dash ground allspice

1. Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl.
2. Place ham in a deep baking dish, with flat/cut end down.
3. Coat ham in a layer of the sugar mixture (I just used my hands to rub it in). Rub excess sugar between each slice.
4. Use a blow-torch or créme brulée torch with a medium-sized flame to caramelize sugar on the outer surface of the ham. Wave the torch over the sugar with rapid movement, so that the sugar bubbles and browns, but does not burn. Spin the plate so you can torch the entire surface of the ham.
5. Repeat the coating and caramelizing process until the ham has been well glazed.
6. Cover pan with foil and cook ham as indicated on packaging.
