Can you glaze a ham the night before?

  • Glazing should be done in the last 15-20 minutes of baking, but you can certainly make the glaze ahead of time. Make the glaze up to five days in advance, cover, and keep refrigerated. Place in a saucepan over low-medium heat to thin it out for basting ham.

  • 1 18 oz. jar of orange marmalade
  • ½ cup of maple syrup
  • cup of orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp Cayenne Pepper Sauce


  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees
  • Place the ham, so the sliced portion is facing down with all of the skin exposed for glazing, in a roasting pan

  • While that's cooking, gather your supplies for the glaze, and get a small saucepan out
  • Over medium heat, combine all of the ingredients for the glaze - marmalade, syrup, juice, and hot sauce
  • Heat until everything is well blended and smooth
  • Pour about 1 cup of the glaze into a bowl for glazing your ham, and keep the rest in the saucepan for now
  • When the ham has about 15 minutes to go, remove the ham from the oven, brush some of the glaze on the ham
  • Return the ham to the oven, uncovered, and continue to bake for about 15 minutes - occasionally adding more glaze
  • Bring the preserves to a boil. Cook stirring constantly for about 1 minute
  • Serve your ham with the spiced sauce


  • Don't forget to cover the ham for baking
Store leftover ham in the refrigerator for 3-4 days
