A necessity during the Christmas season is a lovely, burnished, glazed ham lying around in the fridge. It’s just the thing for when folks come around for an evening by the bonfire, or when my children descend with their friends en mass.
Maple Mustard Glazed Ham
1 5-7 lb. Spiral Cut Smoked Ham
For the Glaze:
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
2 tablespoons Dry Mustard Powder
3 tablespoons Maple Syrup
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Lay the ham face down in a shallow baking dish or roasting pan. Place in the oven for 1 hour.
Mix the glaze and set aside.
After the ham has had its hour in the oven, take it out and drain off any grease that may have collected in the pan.
Smooth on the glaze and place it back in the oven for 10 minutes.
Spoon the caramelized glaze that has collected in the baking dish over the ham. Let the ham rest and cool before refrigerating.
Make sure to have plenty of soft rolls and honey mustard to make sandwiches!
