Mustard Apricot Ham


This is a great weeknight meal or for occasions when you just don't have a lot of time. The apricot mustard glaze is filled with sweetness and just a hint of spice which works great with the ham.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 18 minutes

Total Time: 28 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 2 pounds/900 g fully cooked ham
  • 10-12 apricots, halved and pitted
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL apricot preserves
  • 2 tablespoons/30 mL Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 tablespoon/15 mL water


Preheat grill for medium heat. Place preserves, water, ginger, and mustard in a small saucepan. Cook until ingredients are well blended, about 3-5 minutes. Be sure to stir constantly so mixture doesn't burn. Place ham on grill and allow to cook for 8-10 minutes. Slather ham with apricot glaze and turn over. Grill for and additional 8 minutes, coating ham with glaze 3-4 more times.

While ham is cooking, arrange apricot halves in a grill basket. Grill apricots for about 6 minutes, turning once. Coat apricots with glaze. Remove from heat and set aside.

Once ham is cooked, remove, let rest for 3-5 minutes. Slice and serve with glazed apricots.
