This ham is fantastic, and you can make it a day or two ahead. Just follow the cooking instructions, then take all the ham off the bone and place it in the pan you want to serve it in. Pour some cooking juices over it and refrigerate. Then just reheat the meat as you are ready to serve it. Easy!
- 1 (9-pound) store bought bone-in spiral ham
- 3/4 cup water
For the glaze:
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons whole-grain Dijon mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Place ham in a roasting pan and pour about 3/4 cup water into the bottom of pan. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour and 40 minutes or until heated through, soft and tender.
Make the glaze:
When ham is heated through, remove the aluminum foil, and pour or brush the glaze over the top to cover completely. Raise oven temperature to 400 degrees F.
Return the ham to the oven and cook, uncovered, for 20 minutes or until glaze is caramelized and bubbly. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with desired fixings.
