When I wanted to try something new with our holiday ham, I created this cider glaze. It's slightly sweet but still has the spicy flavor my family craves. —Rebecca LaWare, Hilton, New York

Ingredients

  • 1 fully cooked bone-in ham (6 to 7 pounds)
  • 2 cups apple cider
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice

Directions

  1. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Score the surface of the ham, making diamond shapes 1/2 in. deep. Cover and bake at 325° for 2 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine the cider, honey, vinegar and mustard; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in the butter, chili powder and apple pie spice. Set aside 1 cup for serving.
  3. Cook the remaining sauce until thickened; spoon over ham. Bake, uncovered, until a thermometer reads 140°, 30-35 minutes longer. Warm reserved sauce; serve with ham
