Baked Ham with Maple and Apple Glaze
Baked Ham with Maple and Apple Glaze
Ingredients
2 cups Langers Apple Juice
1/2 cup maple syrup (pure syrup is best)
3 cinnamon sticks
1 tbsp. whole cloves
1 bone-in ham
Directions
Prep time: 10 minutes, Cook time: 2 hours

Combine apple juice, syrup, cinnamon and cloves in
a small
saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer
for 30
minutes. Discard cinnamon sticks and cloves.
Meanwhile,
place ham in a large baking dish, cut side down.
Pierce ham
with a thin knife over the entire surface, making
about 30
slits. Bake at 375°F for 30 minutes; drain and
discard fat.
Pour apple juice mixture into the pan. Using a bulb
baster,
baste ham well with mixture. Reduce heat to 325°F;
cook for
1-1/2 hours more, basting frequently. (Tent loosely
with
foil if ham browns too quickly.) Remove from pan
and thinly
slice. Serve with apple juice mixture.

Makes 12 servings.

Tip! The idea is to have the slits open slightly during
baking so the glaze flavors the inside of the ham.
