Maple Whiskey Glazed Ham

Maple Whiskey Glazed Ham


4 to 6 pound boneless smoked ham with fat cap
50 whole cloves
2 oranges, quartered
1 large onion, cut into 1 inch slices
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup whiskey
1/4 cup whole grain mustard
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon orange zest
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

Cooking Instructions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Using a paring knife, score the fat of the ham creating the 1-inch diamond pattern. Stud the diamonds with the whole cloves.

Coat the bottom of a heavy-bottom roasting pan with olive oil. Put onion slices and orange quarters in the bottom. Place the ham on the onion and oranges. Place in pre-heated oven and roast the ham, uncovered, for about 20 minutes per pound, or until a meat thermometer reads 140 F.

In a small sauce pan, whisk together maple syrup, brown sugar, whiskey, mustard, orange juice, orange zest, ground cloves, and allspice. Heat over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes until slightly thickened.

About 30 minutes before the end of the cooking time, brush the ham with the glaze. Once meat reaches 140 F internal temperature, remove from oven. Lightly tent with foil and allow to stand for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing. Serve hot.
