  • Roasting Pan with Rack


  • 8 pound boneless cooked ham
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp chopped thyme
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp Santa Maria Seasoning
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce


  • In a small bowl, melt the butter and thyme and set it off to the side.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Position the middle rack lower to fit a roasting pan and ham.
  • Score the top of the ham in a crosshatch pattern, but don't cut fully into the meat.
  • Place the ham on a rack sitting in a roasting pan.
  • Cover the ham with tin foil and bake for 45 minutes.
  • In a small bowl whisk together honey, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and the thyme butter you made earlier.
  • The glaze can sit until the ham is finsihed cooking.
  • Open the oven and remove the foil. Brush half of the glaze on the ham and bake again uncovered for 15 minutes.
  • If there is no liquid at the bottom of the pan, add 1 cup water so the glaze doesn't burn.
  • After 15 minutes, brush the rest of the glaze on the ham and bake again for another 15 minutes until it's golden brown.
