Ingredients
  • 1 semi-boneless lean smoked half ham, about 6 pounds
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup apple juice
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon whole-grain deli mustard
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cloves
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  2. Use a sharp knife to slice a patchwork pattern across the skin of the ham, only slicing ⅛ inch into the meat of the ham.
  3. Place the scored ham in a roasting pan lined with aluminum foil, and bake for 1 hour.
  4. Whisk the maple syrup, apple juice, brown sugar, mustard, cornstarch, and cloves in a small sauce pot over medium-high heat. Bring up to a boil, reduce heat to low, and let simmer for 3 minutes to create the glaze.
  5. Spoon half of the glaze over the entire surface of the ham, and return the ham to the oven. Bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Top the ham with the remaining glaze, and bake for an additional 15 minutes. Let the ham rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
