Maple syrup is reduced to concentrate its lovely flavor. Then it is spiced up to create a delicious glaze for ham, which browns up to a rich color. It is a wonderful treatment from the usual pineapple and brown sugar glaze.—Nancy Mueller, Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin

Nutritional Facts

4 ounces cooked ham equals 252 calories, 7 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 93 mg cholesterol, 1,135 mg sodium, 16 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 31 g protein.

Directions

  1. Trim off the skin of the ham and about 1/4 in. of fat. Score the surface of the ham, making diamond shapes 1/4 in. deep. Place the ham, fat side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 2 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring syrup to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until reduced to 3/4 cup. Remove from the heat. Stir in the pecans, mustard, orange peel and allspice.
  3. Baste ham with some of the glaze; bake 30-60 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 140°, basting occasionally with remaining glaze. Let stand for 15 minutes before slicing. Yield: 15 servings.
