Turkey is good, but ham is great.
Ham is probably my favorite of all of the holiday meats.
I make this maple glazed ham recipe the way my mom taught me to make it.
Over the years, I tweaked it a little by adding maple syrup to the simple glaze for a little extra sweetness.
How to make glazed ham
Simply stir the four glaze ingredients together, and you’re ready to go!
For this recipe, you don’t begin glazing the ham until halfway through the baking time.
This keeps the sweet glaze from burning at it bakes.
Tips for glazing the ham
- If you taste the glaze before you add it to the ham, you’ll notice that it’s a mix of sweet with just a little tang to it.
- I baste the ham every 15 minutes or so during the last half of the baking time.
- Resist the urge to add more salt! The juices from the ham add some needed salt to the mix, and the resulting ham is incredibly tasty.
