Maple Glazed

Dutch Oven  Baked Ham

I've tested this recipe with a boneless spiral-cut ham and a bone-in, half ham. Bone-in ham tends to have more fat and a more naturally savory flavor.  Boneless spiral ham has a more mild flavor but is presliced and less intimidating for beginner cooks. Either way, you can't go wrong!

Step 1

1. Place the ham in the Dutch oven, add water, cover it, and cook until the ham has reached an internal temperature of at least 140°F.

Step 2

Whisk all of the glaze ingredients together in a small saucepan. Bring the glaze up to a low boil on the stovetop over low heat. Continue to boil the glaze for a few minutes to slightly thicken it.

Step 3

Pour the glaze over top of the ham and cook uncovered for 20 minutes at 425°F.

If you're making a spiral ham, you'll probably have a rounder top. I like to pull apart the spiral-cut slices so that the glaze can drip down between them. You can also rotate your ham around so that you can pour glaze onto all sides.

Remove the ham from the oven and let it rest for about 10-15 minutes before cutting it into slices. Serve and enjoy!
