Maple Bourbon Glazed Ham

A good glazed ham is next to godliness and this recipe is certainly no exception. Any leftovers are perfect for sandwiches the next day or diced up and adding to a simple breakfast hash.


1 1.5 kg locally raised ham, scored
1 onion, chopped or julienned
2 cups (480 mL) ham or chicken stock
1 cup (240 mL) maple syrup
¼ cup (60 mL) your favourite bourbon
2 Tbs butter
1 Tsp (5 mL) Dijon mustard
¼ cup (60 mL) orange juice, and orange zest
1 Tsp (5 mL) bitters, flavour of your choice


Place scored ham in a roasting pan with the  onion and stock. 

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Combine remaining ingredients in a small pot on the stove and simmer on low heat for 7 minutes. Brush or spoon a quarter of the glaze over the ham. 

Bake for approximately 2-2½ hours or to an internal temperature of 160º F, basting with remaining glaze every 20-30 minutes. 

Let rest for 10 minutes covered  before serving.
