Ingredients

1
bone-in ham
6 lb/2.7 kg
1/3 cup
maple syrup
75 mL
3 tbsp
Dijon mustard
45 mL
2 tbsp
balsamic vinegar
30 mL
1/2 tsp
ground cinnamon
2 mL
1/8 tsp

Method

Step 1
Trim and discard tough outer skin and excess fat from ham; leaving thin layer of fat about 1/8 in. (3 mm) thick. Score top and sides of ham with shallow criss-cross cuts 1 in. (2.5 cm) apart, creating a diamond pattern. Set ham, scored-side up, in large bowl or baking dish.
Step 2
In small bowl, mix maple syrup, mustard, vinegar, cinnamon, cloves and pepper. Pour over ham. Cover and chill ham overnight; brushing top and sides with maple syrup mixture (collected in bottom of bowl) several times.
Step 3
Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C). Place ham in roasting pan lined with parchment paper, scored-side up. Keep maple syrup mixture (from bowl) chilled. Bake ham, uncovered, 1 hr. 15 min. Baste with 1/3 of maple syrup mixture; bake another 10 min. Baste and bake 10 min. twice more. Check that internal temperature reaches 160°F (71°C). Transfer ham to cutting board or platter. Tent with foil; rest 15 min. before slicing and serving.
