Apricot Ginger Mustard-Glazed Ham

Although I usually buy spiral-sliced hams, I decided to do a home-baked ham with a gingery glaze. This is how you do special-occasion dining. —Ally Phillips, Murrells Inlet, South Carolina
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. Bake: 2 hours
  • Makes
    16 servings


  • 1 fully cooked bone-in ham (7 to 9 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup drained canned apricot halves
  • 1/2 cup stone-ground mustard
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh gingerroot
  • 1 tablespoon whole peppercorns
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper


  • Preheat oven to 325°. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Using a sharp knife, score surface of ham with 1/4-in.-deep cuts in a diamond pattern. Cover and bake until a thermometer reads 130°, 1-3/4 to 2-1/4 hours.
  • Meanwhile, place remaining ingredients in a food processor; process until blended. Remove ham from oven. Increase oven setting to 425°. Spread apricot mixture over ham.
  • Bake ham, uncovered, until a thermometer reads 140°, 15-20 minutes longer. If desired, increase oven setting to broil; broil until golden brown, 2-4 minutes.

    Sounds good, but no, I didn't like it. Way too much mustard and ginger.

    Perfect directions for cooking a ham. Glaze was good, I thought the mustard tasted strong, but it was the right amount once it was baked. We will enjoy this all week!!
