Honey Glazed Ham


You’ve got to understand that Norwegians live for sweet rolls. Our local gas stations tempt us with a new version every month. Making them better and fresher than ever. I don’t think you can understand until you visit Norway. I don’t know if you have ever heard the word Kringle, but it’s more of a roll cake. We use the same roll recipe, but we’ll add ChefNorway’s Homemade Vanilla Cream, and I will teach you how to make it look fantastic. You have to make vanilla cream the evening before or early morning you start this. Or go to the store and buy some, but that will never taste as good!

1-2 kg gammon ham
1 leek

US Measurements
2-4.5 lb. gammon ham
1 leek
2 carrots
1 onion (white, yellow, red)
1 tbsp. whole pepper.
2 bay leaves (Christmas version)
1 cinnamon stick
7 oz. brown sugar
8.8 oz. honey
Zest of 2 oranges (Easter version)


  1. Place the gammon with or without the straps into a large casserole pot. (The pot needs to be large enough to cover the gammon with water)
  2. Cover gammon in water, and add roughly chopped leek, carrots, and onion
  3. Add cinnamon stick, and crushed whole pepper. (If you are making this for Christmas add a few bay leaves as well.)
  4. Bring to a boil, and let it slowly boil for two hours. Pay attention and refill with water so gammon stays covered in water.
  5. After two hours take the gammon out of the pot, and start removing straps.
  6. Very lightly crisscross it with a sharp knife.
  7. Stick a bunch of cloves into the fat of the ham.
  8. Then get a small pot and add brown sugar, honey. (And zest of two oranges if it’s Easter ham)
  9. Bring to a boil, then turn off heat.
  10. Place the ham in a baking pan and slowly cover the ham with the sweet mixture.
  11. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
  12. After 15 minutes, cover the ham in the sweet mixture and bake again. Repeat in 5 minute intervals for 35 minutes.

Summary A classic delicious breakfast, lunch ham in the holiday of Christmas or Easter. Simple to make. Some can't get enough of this in my family, so I guess it's that good. I'm not that big fan to be honest.
