Spiced Roasted Ham with Glaze

I love pork products. Probably more than the average person (well not as much as Chef Michael Symon who has multiple pigs tattoos – but close).  So naturally when I had an opportunity to partner with the National Pork Board it was a big giant no brainer. I am official now. Yes officially a Sister Cites of Ham Ambassador (Raleigh – DurHAM) and I have a badge to prove it. A celebration was in order which had to include what else? Ham! This spiced roasted ham with glaze. It’s a showstopper and it couldn’t be easier to make. Promise.

The nice folks at the National Pork Board supplied me with a complimentary coupon to pick up a ham. I chose a spiral cut beauty that came in around 7 pounds. You don’t have to use a spiral cut, for me it’s just one less thing to tackle when it comes out of the oven. I’m impatient and let’s be honest, it’s pretty irresistible straight out of the oven. The smells from the spices, the shimmer from the glaze. I can hardly contain myself just thinking about it now.

Spiced Roasted Ham with Citrus Glaze

Total Time 0:00


  • 6 to 7 pound fully-cooked bone-in ham, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons Dixie Crysals light brown sugar- packed


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Position rack on lowest setting of oven.
  2. If you are not using a spiral cut ham, into the fat, score a 1/8" diamond pattern into the ham.
  3. In a small bowl, combine: coriander, paprika, cumin, cinnamon, and cloves. Rub spice mixture over all sides of the ham. Place ham, flat side down, in a large shallow roasting pan and cook until the internal temperature of the ham reaches 140 degrees F, 1 1/2 to 2 hours or 15 to 18 minutes per pound.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine: marmalade, orange juice, and sugar.
  5. Brush marmalade mixture over the ham. Return to the oven and roast for additional 5 minutes, until the glaze is lightly caramelized. Remove ham from the oven, transfer to a cutting board, and let rest 15 to 30 minutes prior to slicing.

    My favorite way to make ham would be soaked in ginger ale then dump that. I bake it for half hour pouring more ginger ale over it, then a good basting of apricot jam, bake for about an other hour basting the whole time. With what else scalloped potatoes! Oh now I am so hungry!

  44. 44

    I typically just buy a Honey Baked Ham and serve! But I do use a ham in all kinds of recipes: very often a pasta with cream sauce and peas. And then the bone I use for a big pot of black beans and rice.

    I’m crazy about pork: there are so many different ways we use it!

    Rather than glaze my ham, I like to mix brown sugar, salt, dry mustard, and ground cloves. I pat this all over thehot cooked ham, then blowtorch it until the sugar melts, then turns crunchy like a Honeybaked ham. Very good!
