How to Make Honey Baked Ham Seasoning


Honey baked ham is tasty and versatile. A traditional holiday favorite, we also enjoy it sliced thin for sandwiches or cubed and baked into casseroles or egg dishes. There are plenty of store bought products to choose from, but it's more economical to make it yourself and more importantly, you get to choose what you feed to your family. There are just a few basic ingredients in this simple recipe for honey baked ham seasoning. Once you get comfortable with the recipe, experiment and create your own. This glaze is based on a 6 to 8 lb. ham.

Things You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • Combine all ingredients into a small saucepan. The basic components to this glaze are sweet juices and brown sugar. Feel free to experiment with the type and amount of fruit juices. Some recipes call for pear, cherry or prune juice. Likewise, if you don't care for dry mustard, try another seasoning such as allspice or nutmeg.

  • Heat the seasoning on a medium flame. You will want to keep whisking this mixture or it will burn.

  • Cook until the glaze starts to thicken and bubble. You can use a wooden spatula to stir well, making sure to scrape the bottom and sides. If this mixture begins to burn you will have to start over.

  • Turn the heat down to low when it begins to bubble and cook for another 2 minutes.

  • Remove the glaze from heat and put aside until ready to baste onto ham. It is OK if the glaze cools down a little, but it will be easier to work with while it is warm.
