One 4- to 6-pound bone-in ham, fully cooked

1/3 cup honey

1/3 cup dark brown sugar

2 teaspoons cornstarch

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 
  2. Place the ham on a rack in a foil-lined roasting pan, fat-side up. Roast for 1 hour 30 minutes. 
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan set over medium heat, mix the honey, sugar, cornstarch, cayenne and red pepper flakes together. Stir until a thick glaze forms. Rub half of the glaze on the ham and bake for another 30 minutes. 
  4. Add the remaining glaze and cook until a thermometer inserted in the ham reads 140 degrees F, 30 minutes. 
  5. Remove from the oven and rest the ham for at least 15 minutes before serving.
