Baked Easter Ham Recipe

Serves 8 - 10

1 cooked bone-in ham (about 7-8lbs)
¼ cup dark brown sugar
¼ cup maple syrup
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
15 whole cloves

Preheat oven to 325° Fahrenheit.

Score the surface of the ham with shallow diamond-shaped cuts. Stud the ham with the whole cloves and place in a large roasting pan. Insert a thermometer into the thickest part of the ham and cover loosely with foil. Bake until the thermometer shows a temperature of 135°, about 20minutes per lb. Use the juices of the ham to baste occasionally.

In the meantime, combine the brown sugar, maple syrup and mustard in a small bowl. Whisk until you have a smooth paste. When the ham reaches a temperature of about 125°, take off the foil and glaze the ham all over. Continue baking until the ham reaches a temperature of 135° and is nicely browned all over.
