Apricot Brown Sugar Ham


This succulent ham is a family favorite that I've adapted for my own tastes. This makes an amazing Easter dinner ham that complements many side dishes.

Cook Time:
2 hrs
Total Time:
2 hrs


  • 1 (10 pound) fully-cooked spiral cut ham

  • cup brown sugar

  • cup apricot jam

  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C).

  2. Place the ham cut side down onto a sheet of aluminum foil. I like to put the shiny side up. Mix together the brown sugar, apricot jam, and mustard powder in a small bowl. Brush onto the ham using a pastry or barbeque brush. Reserve any leftover glaze. Enclose the foil around the ham and place on a rimmed baking sheet.

  3. Roast for 2 hours in the preheated oven, or if your ham is a different size, figure 14 minutes per pound. Apply the remaining glaze 20 minutes before the ham is done.
