Honey Baked Ham

Honey Baked Ham


1 large bone-in ham (mine weighed about 12 pounds)

1/3 cup butter, melted

8 oz. honey

1/8 cup dark corn syrup


Roasted grapes are optional, but if you want to add them, roast them on a Silpat or parchment lined baking sheet for 15 minutes at 425 degrees. Set aside. (You can do this the day before)

Place the ham flat side down and bake, covered with aluminum foil, for one hour at 250 degrees fahrenheit.  

Melt the butter together with the honey and corn syrup. 

Remove the foil from the roast, raise the temperature to 350 degrees fahrenheit, and reposition the ham so that the fatty part is on top. Cook for another hour, basting with the butter/honey/corn syrup mixture several times.

If using the roasted grapes, add the cooked grapes during the last minute or two, just to heat them through again.

Slice, swishing the slices through the honey glaze as you put them on the serving platter.
