  • 6 to 10 pound fully cooked ham like a bone-in spiral ham
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons pineapple juice
  • 1 tablespoon dried mustard
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest


  • Preheat your oven to 325°.
  • Place the ham "face-down" in a deep roasting pan. Add in a cup of water. Insert an oven-safe thermometer and cover the entire pan with aluminum foil.
  • Place ham in oven and bake until the thermometer reads 130-135 degrees. Combine the brown sugar, pineapple juice, zest and dried mustard. Stir to combine. If it's a little thick add a tablespoon of water to thin it out. Set aside.
  • Remove ham and crank the oven temp up to 425 degrees. Discard any accumulating juices in the pan. Brush the glaze all over the ham and return it to the oven to bake for 20-25 more minutes. Let the ham rest for 10-15 minutes covered in foil before slicing off of the bone.
