Servings and Ingredients

Serves 18
1 c. Hy-Vee honey
½ c. Hy-Vee apple cider vinegar
½ c. fresh ginger, peeled and coarsely chopped
½ c. fresh lemon juice
½ c. Hy-Vee brown sugar, packed
½ c. whiskey
⅓ c. Hy-Vee Dijon mustard
2 oranges, zest removed in strips with peeler
2 cinnamon sticks
10 whole cloves
2 clove(s) garlic, crushed
2 large carrots, peeled and cut into large chunks
2 large celery stalks, cut into large chunks
1 medium onion, cut into large wedges
1 medium orange, cut into 4 wedges
1 smoked cured spiral-sliced ham, about 7- to 9-pounds

Things To Grab

  • Heavy medium saucepan
  • Fine-mesh sieve
  • Small bowl
  • Large roasting pan
  • Silicone pastry brush
  • Aluminum foil
  • Meat thermometer
  • Large carving board
  • Large platter


  1. Make Glaze: Combine all glaze ingredients in heavy medium saucepan and bring to simmer over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Remove pan from heat and steep for 15 minutes. Strain through fine-mesh sieve into small bowl; discard solids.

  2. Prepare Ham: Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°F. Place carrots, celery, onion and orange wedges in bottom of large roasting pan. Remove all packaging from ham and discard spice-glaze package. Set ham on top of cut vegetables in roasting pan. Brush some glaze over ham. Cover ham (not roasting pan) with foil.

  3. Bake until thermometer inserted into thickest part of ham registers 115°F, about 2 hours. Remove foil and brush ham with glaze. Continue to bake ham for another 30 minutes, brushing ham with glaze every 10 minutes. Glaze should be golden and caramelized and ham should be fully heated through.

  4. Transfer ham to a carving board and let rest 5 minutes. Strain any pan drippings into small saucepan and skim off any excess oil. Stir remaining glaze into pan drippings and stir over medium heat until mixture reaches 165 degrees.

  5. Set ham on platter and serve warmed glaze mixture alongside to drizzle over ham slices.
