Grandma’s Traditional Holiday Glazed Maple And Brown Sugar Ham
“ I always put my vote in for a giant pot of ham and white beans.” Jodie
1 spiral sliced ham
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup pear nectar you can find this in the alcohol mix section if its not in the juice section
of the store
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup molasses is good too
Preheat oven to 375.
Place ham cut side down in deep baking pan.
Mix pear nectar and OJ together and pour over ham.
Roast for 30 minutes, basting every 10 minutes with juice.
Meanwhile mix together syrup and sugar.
Pour on top of ham then spread evenly over it.
Bake until sugar caramelizes and starts to form a crust, about an hour.
Let rest, enjoy!
Over the years we have moved away from spiral sliced hams for this recipe and have been
using the shank end unsliced hams that are usually about half the price of spiral sliced.
When we do that, we crosshatch the ham before we bake it. That means we score the
outside of the ham with a knife in a diamond pattern. The cuts are usually only about a 1/4
-1/2 inch deep. This helps some of the fat render off the ham and allows the glaze and juice
to get down to the meat of the ham.
