Maple Baked Ham

No recipe image available.Ham baked and basted with pure maple syrup and served with an incredible sauce made from the pan drippings.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 (5-pound) bone-in, fully-cooked ham
3 cups pure maple syrup
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
Water as needed

Cooking Directions:

  1. Bake ham according to package directions or place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Insert a meat thermometer into the thickest portion of the meat. Cook approximately 15 to 24 minutes per pound or until thermometer registers 140°F (60°C).
  2. Thirty minutes before ham is done, remove from oven. Score surface. Remove half the drippings and reserve.
  3. Pour maple syrup over the ham, return ham to oven and continue baking. When ham is done, remove from oven and pour the pan drippings into a saucepan. Add the reserved drippings and reduce to about half.
  4. In a small cup whisk together the flour with just enough water to make a loose paste (a slurry). Add to the drippings to thicken and serve with the sliced ham.

Makes 10 to 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.
