Apricot Glazed Ham | Flavor, NC


  • 1 (12- to 14-pound) fully cooked, spiral-cut smoked ham
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1 (13-ounce) jar apricot preserves
  • ½ cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • Grated zest and juice of 1 orange
  • Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 teaspoons fresh minced rosemary

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a large roasting pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil (or use a disposable roasting pan). Place the ham in the roasting pan, cut-side down, onto the rack and wrap tightly in foil; roast for 1 hour.

In a bowl, whisk together the garlic, preserves, brown sugar, ginger, Dijon, orange zest and juice, lemon zest and juice and rosemary. Remove the foil from the ham; pour the glaze over the ham and bake until the ham is fully heated through and the glaze is well-browned, about 1 hour. (If the glaze starts to burn, tent the ham with buttered foil.) Let the ham stand for 15 minutes before carving.
