  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.

I used orange marmelade since I didn't have apricot at home and it was OK. Nothing special.

My ham was smaller, but I went ahead & used the full amount of glaze. We loved the flavor, and my ham was tender & juicy & the glaze was a sweet & tangy complement to the ham. I used 2 teaspoons...

This was very good coating for ham. I like the idea of wrapping the ham in foil with the glaze while it cooks. I just added all of the glaze at the beginning and didn't unwrap it towards the e...

Exceptional!! I myself am not a huge ham fan~ this one I am! I used a regular bone in ham, not a spiral cut. I also decided to use my crock pot. I put a small bit (about 5 oz) of soda (I use...

It seems to be my job to cook hams during the holidays. I tried this one at Thanksgiving this year and everyone loved it. I used a huge 26 pound ham, so I had to use a little more. I also used m...

This ham was great. Everybody loved it. I followed the recipe exactly and it was perfect. The ham gravy was delicious--I added extra apricot jam to the juice to really bring out the flavor. T...

Best way to glaze and cook the ham. Used spicy brown mustard instead of dry.

This was the best ham ever!!! I've been looking for a ham recipe and FINALLY found one! I used a spiral cut ham, put most of the glaze on, wrapped my ham in foil and popped it in the oven. Ab...

I used a brown sugar and mustard glaze as I had no apricot jam and it turned out great. Will use this recipe every time.
