Maple-glazed ham


Ingredients

  • 1 small, fully, cooked boneless smoke ham , about 1.125 kg
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp yellow or Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar

Instructions

  • To gently heat ham, preheat oven to 325F (160C). Remove wrapping from ham and place in a shallow pan or pie plate. If there is a cut side on ham, place it cut-side down. Pour about 1/2 cup (125 mL) water into pan. Place a piece of foil loosely overtop. Don’t seal to pan edges. Bake in centre of 325F (160C) oven for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, stir remaining ingredients together. After ham has baked 30 minutes, remove foil. Baste ham with maple mixture and continue baking for 30 more minutes, basting occasionally with maple mixture. Use any remaining maple mixture as a dipping sauce.
