Apple Mustard Glazed Ham

 Enjoy the leftovers the next day.



10 lb (4.5 kg) fully cooked bone-in whole ham

Apple mustard Glaze:
1/3 cup (75 mL) apple jelly
2 tbsp (25 mL) Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp (2 mL) pepper


Place ham, fat side up, on rack in roasting pan; pour in 2 cups (500 mL) water. Cover pan tightly with foil; roast in 325°F (160°C) oven for 2 hours, adding more water if necessary to maintain level.

If ham has skin, slide sharp knife under skin and lift off. Trim fat layer to 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness. Diagonally score fat side of ham to form diamond pattern.

Apple Mustard Glaze:
In small saucepan, melt apple jelly over medium heat; remove from heat. Stir in mustard and pepper; brush enough of the glaze over ham to cover.

Roast ham, brushing several times with remaining glaze, until meat thermometer inserted in centre registers 140°F (60°C), 45 to 60 minutes. Transfer ham to cutting board and tent with foil; let stand for 20 minutes.

To carve ham, cut down to bone into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices. With knife parallel to bone, cut off slices along bone. Turn remaining meaty portion up; repeat carving.

Tip: If you want to cook a spiral-sliced ham, reduce both the first and second roasting time by 30 minutes each, or follow the instructions found on the label of the ham.
