Ham is perfect to make for the holidays because it’s easy, feeds a lot of people and it’s pretty hard to mess up. Leftovers can be used to make this Leftover Ham Bone Soup with Potatoes and Cabbage, Pressure Cooker Split Pea Soup with Ham and 16 Bean Soup with Ham and Kale.

Apricot-Rum Glazed Spiral Ham is perfect for the Holidays, and easy since the ham is already cooked you're basically just heating it up and adding your own glaze.

This recipe was ever so slightly adapted from the cookbook How To Celebrate Everything. An adorable book filled with recipes for Holidays, Family Dinners, Birthday Rituals and everything in between.

Leftover ham is always great in soups, omelets, beans, and fried rice. Really just about anything you want to add flavor to. Since pre-sliced hams are sold fully cooked, all you have to do is warm it through in the oven for about 10 to 12 minutes per pound. If your ham comes with a glaze packet, toss it out and make it with this simple glaze instead. It will taste much better than the questionable ingredients in the packet that comes with the ham.

And don’t throw away that ham bone!

  1. I was wondering if this could be cooked in an electric roaster? Thanks, I tried this in the oven and it was so good but I want to make sure I have my oven for the other things.🙂

    • I have cooked my spiral ham in the roaster for years. Just remember your ham is already cooked so you are basically just warming it up. They will dry out.

  2. Delicious!    The first time I’ve ever been confident enough to ditch the packet of glaze and make my own.   Not sure why I waited so long.  

  3. I have made this before and love the recipe as is. However, is there a way to modify this for just ham steaks? It is only two of us in my household and don’t want to have a whole lot of ham left over this year.

  4. I don’t have a rack for my roasting pan.  Can I still roast it in the oven? Is it okay to sit at the bottom of the pan? 

  5.  Could this be done in an instant pot?  What settings and for how long?

  6. Hi 
    I have a roasting black pan but no rack, just wondering if I can bake it for the hour without the rack.
    I need to add a cup of water, will it be ok to have the ham sit in the water?
    Also, read that we can crunch up some foil to make a rack like to simulate the rack itself..
    Your thoughts?

  7. Can I Do this with a picnic ham in the crockpot? Same Cook time? No liquid?

  8. Hello! Is there a substitute for the dark rum?

  9. I want to do this in the crockpot. WOuld you recommend this recipe for that cooking method and would I follow the standard instructions like you have for the apricot Dijon crockpot ham in your recipe list?

    • Yes that would work. Since it’s not in the oven, which gives you that glaze, brush 1 tbsp apricot over the top the last 30 minutes.

  10. Are these the most updated Smart Points from WW?

    • In this post, Gina says she has already updated all recipes from 2017 back to 3011 and is working on the previous ones.  🙂

  11. Hi Gina, what are good side dishes for this ham?

  12. What kind of sides would
    You recommends with this?  Looking for something possibly made in one pot.

  13. I did a 7lb ham and mine dried out some as well. I’d say foil might help or check it and do less time if need be. The flavor was the best ham I’ve ever tasted! Everyone loved it! 

  14. Tried it yesterday and everyone loved it!

  15. I followed this for Easter, 2017. Wonderful flavor but foil could be called for at least part of the time. The thin slices did dry out a bit.

  16. What if the ham isn’t spiral cut? Does that change anything? 

  17. Is there a difference between spiced rum and dark rum? I’m going to try this out Easter Sunday. 

  18. This looks delicious! Would you cover this with foil to bake, or leave uncovered? I am always nervous about spiral hams drying out. Thanks!

  19. Can this be adapted for a crockpot? If so how would you go about it? Thanks! Looks awesome!

  20. looks amazing! How could I adapt this recipe to work well in the slow cooker? Won’t have room in my oven for other Easter casseroles! thanks so much 🙂

  21. Add ham sandwiches to list for leftovers! 

  22. Where would I buy a cooked spiral ham?

  23. Hi Gina. What if I don’t have rum on hand for the glaze…can I add water or balsamic vinegar to the preserves?  Thanks, and I love your recipes!  They are healthy, delicious, simple, and family friendly – perfect!
