How To Glaze Ham
No matter what type of glaze you plan to use (such as a brown sugar glaze for ham, pineapple ham glaze or a honey mustard glaze), you need to know how to glaze the ham first and foremost. And there are plenty of different hams to choose from, like roasted ham, honey-baked ham, spiral ham, regular baked ham, ham steak and more.
Before glazing any type of ham, however, it must be thoroughly cooked. Since the ham glaze will contain sugars of some sort, it's important not to glaze the ham until the last 20-30 minutes of the cooking time because if you glaze it too early, the sugars will caramelize and end up burning.
Once the ham is mostly cooked, use a brush to spread the glaze all over the surface of the ham before returning it to the oven and finishing cooking.
