Thinking Outside the Jar: Balsamic Mustard and Maple Glazed Ham

Since discovering freshly smoked ham at our local market there’s no going back to processed ham from the grocery store (how does it get formed into that odd shape?). Ham, scalloped potatoes and steamed carrots made for the perfect Easter meal, as it’s not time consuming and the ham happily cooks away, waiting to be glazed in the last 15 minutes of cooking.

The last ham we baked got devoured quite quickly and was delicious with a Mango Ginger Lime glaze and this time we’ve gone a little different with some Grainy Balsamic Mustard (currently in-stock) as the base for a glaze.

2 tbsp Grainy Balsamic Mustard

2-3 tbsp brown sugar

1 tbsp maple syrup

1-2 tbsp apple cider

Combine all ingredients in a small pot and bring to a soft boil over medium-high heat. Cook for 2 minutes and pour over ham in the last 15 minutes of baking. Glaze is even better when recipe is doubled, that way you get a glaze and a sauce for the sliced ham. Enjoy!
