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 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? 

  2. 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?

  3. 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?

    1. 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.

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

  4. 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! 

  5. 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.

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

    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 🙂

  8. 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!
