Maple-Glazed Ham with Maple-Mustard Sauce

Cooking Light APRIL 1995

  • Yield: 24 servings (serving size: 3 ounces ham and 1 1/2 tablespoons sauce)


  • 1 (8 1/2-pound) 33%-less-sodium smoked, fully cooked ham half
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 1 1/4 cups maple syrup, divided
  • 2/3 cup Dijon mustard, divided
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange rind
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 cup orange marmalade


Trim fat and rind from ham. Score outside of ham in a diamond pattern. Place ham on a rack coated with cooking spray, and place rack in a shallow roasting pan.

Combine 1/4 cup maple syrup, 2 tablespoons mustard, orange rind, and orange juice; stir well, and brush over ham. Bake at 425° for 5 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 325°, and cook an additional 1 hour and 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Baste ham with maple syrup mixture every 30 minutes. Transfer ham to a platter, and let stand 15 minutes before slicing.

Combine remaining syrup, remaining mustard, and marmalade in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring constantly. Serve with ham.

Note: Reserve the (18-ounce) ham bone from the Maple-Glazed Ham With Maple-Mustard Sauce to use in the Spicy Ham-and-Bean Soup recipe.
