Horseradish Honey Ham Recipe

Horseradish Honey Ham Recipe

When my husband and I first tasted this delicious ham, we were surprised to learn that the sauce included horseradish. That secret ingredient definitely is the key to its tangy taste. I serve it for Easter and Christmas.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour 40 min. YIELD:16 servings


  • 1 boneless fully cooked ham (5 to 7 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup honey, warmed
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup prepared horseradish
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice


  • 1. Cut ham into 1/4-in. slices and tie with kitchen string. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.
  • 2. Combine honey and cloves; drizzle over ham. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1-1/4 hours, basting often with drippings.
  • 3. Meanwhile, combine the brown sugar, horseradish and lemon juice. Baste ham with brown sugar sauce, allowing sauce to drip down between the slices. Bake, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes or until a thermometer reads 140°. Yield: 16 servings.
