When the centerpiece is an easy entrée like this gorgeously marbled ham, your Easter menu is just a few sides short of an amazing feast. The ham is glazed with honey, ginger, orange zest, and cloves and couldn't be simpler to make or more delicious.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 325°F with a rack in lower third. Stir together honey, orange zest and juice, ginger, cloves, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Wrap ham, fat-cap-side up, tightly in parchment-lined foil. Place on a rimmed baking sheet or in a small roasting pan.

  • Bake 1 hour. Unwrap, leaving foil under ham to catch juices. Brush with some of the glaze; continue baking, uncovered, basting with more glaze every 15 minutes, until heated through, 45 minutes to 1 hour more. Brush with remaining glaze; let cool slightly. Serve warm.

Cook's Notes

To store leftovers, remove the bone (reserve it for soup) and place the meat and baking juices in an airtight container. Refrigerate for up to five days, or freeze for up to three months.
