Follow these steps to prepare the perfect Glazed Ham and wow your entire family

Start with preheating the oven to 3250. Place the ham on a roasting rack set up in a roasting pan and score it diagonally. Cover it with a foil and bake the foil covered ham until it is warmed throughout. This should take around 2 ½ to 3 hours.

As the last 45 minutes of the baking passes by start making the glaze. Get a small saucepan and whisk together some brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, Dijon and apple cider over low heat.

Simmer everything in the saucepan until it is reduced by half and brush the glaze you prepared on the ham every 10 minutes for the last 45 minutes. This will roughly amount to 5 times of glazing the ham.

Once you are done with the glazing, remove the ham from the oven and let it sit for around 15 minutes. Transfer everything to the serving platter along with apples and thyme.
