Better Budgeting: Honey Glazed Ham

Honey Glazed Ham

Frugal Family Recipes (featured column)
by Michelle Jones, editor of BetterBudgeting.com

Instead of ordering an expensive ham for the holidays from your local gourmet store you can make your own honey glazed ham at home and save a fortune!

Ingredients:

1 fully cooked ham
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
2-3 T. honey

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Score top of ham with sharp knife, in a crisscross pattern. Cuts should be about a 1/2-inch deep.

Place ham on a rack in a shallow baking pan (or just straight in the pan if you don't have a rack) and cook for about 20 minutes per pound.

In a separate bowl, mix sugar and honey into a paste and brush on the top and sides of ham during the last hour of baking, repeating every 20 minutes.

Served warm or cold your guests won't be disappointed!

Note: Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 1 week.  If you have a lot of ham leftover you might want to freeze several large slices in a freezer bag or container (I like to put up at least one serving large enough to feed our family a nice dinner).  Just be sure to add a spoonful of the ham juices to the freezer bag and it will help them stay moist when reheating later.
