Servings 6


  • Air Fryer


  • 21/2 pound Ham
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1/3 cup Brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 1/4 cup Orange juice
  • 1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon


  • Remove the ham from the fridge and allow it to come to room temperature before cooking.
  • Next, prepare the glaze. In a saucepan, add the butter, brown sugar, honey, orange juice, and cinnamon. Whisk over medium heat until simmering. Set aside.
  • If the ham is not pre-sliced, score the ham with shallow 1/2-inch criss-cross cuts. Place 2 large sheets of foil into the air fryer basket and place the ham in the center.
  • Brush with some of the glazes over the top and around the sides of the ham. Cover the foil tightly.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 300°F. Place the ham into the air fryer and cook for 15 minutes at 300°F
  • After 15 minutes, carefully remove the air fryer basket and brush more glazes onto the ham. Cover the foil and cook for another 15 minutes at 300°F.
  • After that, remove the air fryer basket, and brush more glazes onto the ham. Place the air fryer basket back, and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes at 380°F.
  • Once cooked, let the air fryer ham rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
