Table of contents
Originally, the problem with most supermarket hams was that they offered very little in the way of flavor but were priced way above reasonable expectations.
Now, we consumers have taken back control.
Opting for more flavorful, robust versions at a fraction of the cost.
Nutmeg and clove round out this succulent honey-baked ham.
Both combined bring out the soft undertones of the ham in a nice, air-like way. And we can't mix in honey and sugar without a whole lot of warm butter.

HOW TO MAKE HONEY BAKED HAM
Although there's a combination of steps to complete, making ham is pretty easy. Here's how to get started:
Step 1: Crockpot
- Add melted butter and honey together. Stir to mix.
- Place ham in the crockpot and slightly separate the spiral slices, rubbing the mixed butter and honey on it.
- Cover and allow to cook on low for 4-5 hours.
Step 2: Broiler
- Preheat the broiler on low.
- Transfer the ham to the roasting pan.
You want to make sure that the ham doesn't dry out during the roasting stage. Have a cup or two of warm water nearby and continuously monitor the ham and add in as necessary. Also cover with foil to prevent drying if needed.
Next, Glaze Your Honey Baked Ham
- Combine the sugar, seasoning salt, onion powder, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground ginger, ground cloves, paprika, and allspice together. Stir to mix.
- Divide in half. Set one half of the mixture aside.
- Using your hands pat one half of the mixed seasonings on top of the ham.
Step 4: Additional Instructions
- Add the remaining mixed seasoning to a small saucepan. Stir to mix. Add about 2-3 tablespoons of water, continuing to stir to completely blend.
- Return to the broiler (still on low heat) for 1-2 minutes.
- Remove from the broiler and set aside for 5-10 minutes.
- When ham is near end of cook time, carefully separate the slices and pour most of the glaze over the ham so that glaze soaks through meat.
- While meat is roasting in pan you can baste and glaze with the juices from the bottom of the pan.
