This easy Orange-Maple Glazed Ham is perfect for the holidays, feeds a crowd, and takes only minutes of prep time!
Ingredients
  • 1 (9-pound) bone-in, fully-cooked city ham, shank end, spiral cut
  • 4 cups orange juice
  • 1 orange, zested
  • 4 sprigs of thyme
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
Instructions
  1. Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat to 300 degrees F.
  2. Place the ham in a large roasting pan with a rack and pour ¾ cup of water into the bottom of the pan. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
  3. While the ham is roasting, prepare the glaze. In a large saucepan combine the orange juice, orange zest, and thyme. Bring to a boil and cook stirring occasionally, until reduced to ½ cup, about 20 - 25 minutes.
  4. Remove the sprigs of thyme and stir in the maple syrup, soy sauce, and pepper. Set aside.
  5. Once the ham has been in the oven for 1 ½ hours, remove from the oven and pour/brush the glaze over the top to completely cover. Raise the temperature to 400 degrees F. Return the ham to the oven and cook, uncovered for 20 minutes, or until the glaze is bubbly and has caramelized.
  6. Transfer the ham to a cutting board and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
