This special glazed ham will easily take center stage on the holiday table.
1 (5 to 7-pound) boneless ham
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
4 tablespoons whole cloves
2/3 cup orange marmalade
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 cups red wine
2/3 cup club or lemon-lime soda
- Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C).
- Place ham in a shallow baking dish. Spread with mustard and stud with whole cloves. Spoon orange marmalade on top.
- Mix together syrup, vinegar, wine and soda. Drizzle over ham.
- Bake for 2 hours*, basting every 15 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted into ham reads 140°F (60°C). Let stand for 15 minutes before slicing.
Makes 12 servings.
*Note: Directions are for a bone-in, fully cooked ham. Also called “ready-to-eat” or “heat-and-serve” ham. A “cook-before-eating” ham must be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F (70°C), approximately 18 to 20 minutes per pound.
