Recipe for Maple and Mustard Glazed Applewood Smoked Heritage Holiday Ham

Ingredients

  • 1 Applewood Smoked Bone-In Heritage Ham
  • 1/2 cup Champagne vinegar
  • 1 cup real maple syrup
  • 2/3 cup grainy Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons jam, such as apricot, peach, or plum
  • Coarse salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper 

Preparation

  1. Bring the ham up to room temperature. We recommend removing it from the fridge at least an hour before you plan on heating it.
  2. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Place the ham fat-side-up in a heavy-bottomed roasting pan. Place a sheet of parchment paper over the ham then cover tightly with aluminum foil. Heat in the oven until the internal temperature reaches about 140 degrees F. An oven-safe probe thermometer works well - poke it into the thickest part of the ham without touching the bone.
  3. While the ham is on the oven, heat the vinegar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until reduced to about 2 tablespoons. Whisk in maple syrup, mustard, jam, and salt; season with pepper. Cook, whisking, until well combined, about 2 minutes.
  4. Once ham reaches the proper temperature, unwrap and brush with some glaze; raise oven to 475 degrees F. Bake, brushing occasionally with remaining glaze, until browned, about 15 minutes more.
  5. Remove the ham from the oven and allow it to rest, tented with foil, before serving.
