Maple-Spice Glazed Ham

Liquid error (recipe-products line 9): comparison of String with 0 failed

 

This recipe was adapted from Weinstein & Scarborough's An Obsession with HAM The Hindquarter.


Ingredients:
- 1 Full or Half Ham any rind removed.
- 1 tsp Sugar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground allspice
- 1/2 tsp ground cloves
- 1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 of quality maple syrup

You will need a large roasting pan. preferably one that is strong, and shiny so as to reflect the heat back on the ham.

Set your oven rack high in the oven whilst still allowing 5cm of headspace for the ham.

Set the oven temp at 190C.

Mix the sugar, spices and salt in a bowl.

Rub the spice mix all over the ham, ensuring you've covered it's entirety.

With a basting brush paint the ham with maple syrup, leaving 2/3rd of the syrup in reserve.

Place the ham in the oven. You will bake the ham for the next 45-70mins (depending on the size of the ham and the heat of your oven). When glazing a ham it's all about colour and smell, if the colour is golden brown and it smells amazing you're done - there's no need to worry about doneness as our hams are cooked already.

At 20 min intervals, reapply maple syrup from your reserve, and also any liquid that has cooked down into the pan.

If you're finding parts of the ham are burning before others have browned then some crafty work with tin foil can be a life-saver. You can tent the ham loosely or rip off strips which can be pinned down with a clove!

Once your have your desired finish, transfer the ham to a carving board and be sure to let your Ham cool for at least 20mins before carving.
