Baked spiral ham with a simple homemade glaze using fresh orange juice, honey, pineapple juice, dijon mustard and a touch of brown sugar makes this a perfect dish for the Holidays!
Spiral hams are great for catering to large parties because they are precooked and sliced which makes for easy serving when it comes out of the oven. A few other spiral ham recipes I love are Apricot Rum Glazed Spiral Ham, Slow Cooker Spiral Ham with Apricot-Dijon Glaze and for that Left over ham, a Ham Bone Soup with Potatoes and Cabbage.
What cut of meat is a spiral ham?
A spiral ham is a is the back leg of a pig that is then cut in one continuous spiral around the bone. This allows the bone-in ham to be more easily cut and consistently infused with the flavors you cook with.
How long does Spiral Ham last in the fridge?
I would not leave this in the fridge longer than 3-5 days. If you plan on eating it over a longer period of time then freeze it.
