Our 4 pound boneless ham was cooked in a 6qt. Air fryer. If your air fryer is smaller and you’re cooking with a smaller ham, adjust cooking times. Make sure to not have the foil touch the heating elements of the air fryer. If it touches, then your ham is too large for your air fryer. We estimate about 10 minutes per pound for air frying the ham.
For a caramelized outside, cook for an extra 5 minutes un-covered.
Make the Glaze: Combine the brown sugar glaze ingredients (brown sugar, honey, orange juice, optional mustard, cinnamon, clove, and black pepper). Heat and whisk until brown sugar is dissolved and glaze is well combined. Set aside.
Line the air fryer basket with 2 pieces of long, overlapping foil sheets (see step-by step photos on website write up above). Lay the ham on top of the foil and then brush about 1/3 of the glaze over the ham. Close the foil over the ham and wrap tightly.
Optional serving: Combine the juices from the air fryer basket and the remaining glaze in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 5 minutes or until thickened. Brush the glaze onto the ham when serving or serve alongside in a bowl for everyone to add as they like.
