Thyme Honey Glazed Ham is a light and flavorful ham glaze recipe the whole family will enjoy. Simple to make and delicious to eat! 


  • 3 pound ham*
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme*
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. In a small saucepan, combine honey, apple cider vinegar, fresh thyme, Kosher salt and butter. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat.
  2. Cook your ham according to package directions. Since you can use any cut you'd like, it is hard for me to instruct you on temperatures and times.
  3. When ham is about 30 minutes away from being done, start to baste with thyme honey glaze, basting every 10 minute until finished. Be mindful to get in all the cuts, nooks and crannies for the most flavor!
  4. If you've tried this recipe, come back and let us know how it was!

Recipe Notes

Use this ham glaze on any cut of ham, spiral cut ham, ham steaks, bone-in ham or just a small ham roast. Feel free to double the recipe if you are making a large roast.
