Caramel Walnut Glazed Spiral Ham

  • Yield: 10 to 12 servings
  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Cook: 160 mins


10pounds spiral ham
1-1/2cup brown sugar
3/4cup mulled apple cider
1/3cup crushed ginger snaps
3/4cup toasted California walnut pieces


  1. Toasting Walnuts: In large, dry skillet over medium-high heat, toast walnuts, stirring occasionally, until lightly brown, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Cook spiral ham as per instructions found on the label [or for 13 to 15 minutes per pound in a 375F (190C) oven].
  3. Ten minutes prior to serving ham, place a sauce pan over high heat and combine brown sugar and apple cider. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer until it forms into a thick syrup, about 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat and add ginger snaps and walnuts to syrup.
  4. Remove ham from oven and place on platter; pour syrup over ham, slice and serve.
