  1. 1 spiral-cut, bone-in, fully cooked ham (about 8-10 lbs.)

  2. 1/4 cup sugar-free honey substitute (e.g., Nature's Hollow Sugar-Free Honey)

  3. 1/4 cup brown sugar substitute (e.g., Swerve Brown Sugar Replacement)

  4. 1/4 cup unsalted butter

  5. 2 tbsp Dijon mustard

  6. 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

  7. 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

  8. 1/4 tsp ground cloves

  9. 1/4 tsp smoked paprika


  1. Preheat oven to 200°F (93°C). Line a large roasting pan with foil and place the ham in the pan. Set aside.

  2. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar-free honey substitute, brown sugar substitute, butter, Dijon mustard, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and smoked paprika. Heat over medium-low heat until the sugar substitute is dissolved (no need to bring to a boil).

  3. Baste the ham with about 1/3 of the honey mixture, ensuring to brush in between all the slices.

  4. Cover the ham with foil or a lid, and bake at 200°F (93°C) for 5 hours. Baste a second time halfway through using half of the remaining honey mixture. Check the temperature often. Once the ham reaches 140°F (60°C), it's ready.

  5. Remove the ham from the oven and set the oven to "broil." While the oven is getting to temperature, baste the ham one last time using the remaining mixture, ensuring a nice even coating over the top.

  6. Place the ham, uncovered, back in the oven. Watch it closely! Once the glaze starts to caramelize and bubble up, remove the ham from the oven. Allow the ham to rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
