A bone-in glazed ham is the perfect entree for many an occasion. Easter, Christmas, or even a backyard luau, a ham is a wonderful and delicious centerpiece for a tablescape.

But did you know that a balsamic glazed ham is not only scrumptious, but incredibly easy to make?

All you need is a bottle of your favorite balsamic vinegar, some patience, and you've got yourself a delicious ham!

Our favorite? A ham doused in our Hot Honey Balsamic Vinegar. Yes, it is just as delicious as it sounds. 

Although this recipe is for a Hot Honey Balsamic Ham specifically, feel free to try any balsamic vinegar that suits your fancy! We are also partial to our Bourbon Reserve Balsamic Vinegar for a ham entree.

Easy Hot Honey Ham Recipe with Balsamic Vinegar Glaze



  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). Place the ham in a roasting pan with a rack, fat side up. Score the ham’s surface in a diamond pattern about 1/4-inch deep to help the glaze better adhere and penetrate.

  2. Apply the Glaze: Brush about one-third of the glaze over the ham before baking. You can insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the ham to monitor its internal temperature.

  3. Bake: Place the ham in the oven, uncovered. Bake for about 1.5 to 2 hours, or until the thermometer reads 140°F (60°C) for fully cooked ham, basting with the glaze every 30 minutes to ensure it stays moist and flavorful.

  4. Rest and Serve: After baking, let the ham rest for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the ham. Slice and serve the ham, optionally garnishing with fresh herbs like rosemary or thyme for an aesthetic and flavorful touch.

Time to Enjoy!
