kmi1135

Ingredients

1 fully cooked ham, about 6 to 8 pounds
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup apple juice
1 heaping tablespoon mustard, either spicy brown or Dijon style
Optional spices – a scant amount of allspice, or cinnamon, or ginger.
Cloves to stud the ham with (also optional)

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F

Put the ham, fat side up, on rack in a foil-lined roasting pan; score fat and stud with cloves, if desired.

Cook the ham slowly at 325° F for about 18 minutes per pound, until meat thermometer or instant read thermometer registers 148° F.

Make the Glaze:

Mix the syrup, brown sugar, apple juice, mustard and the optional spices you choose to use in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for about 2 minutes.

About 20 minutes before the ham is done, spoon about half of the glaze over top of ham, then about 10 minutes before done, spread remaining glaze over ham.

Serves 8 to 10.
