Maple and Apple Cider Glazed Smoked Ham

Maple and Apple Cider Glazed Smoked Ham



  • 7-8 lb cooked, boneless, wood smoked ham
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider jelly

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Rinse ham and place in roasting pan.


Pour cider over ham, insert a meat thermometer in center of ham and seal with aluminum foil.  Since I don’t use aluminum foil to cook or bake with, I use a covered roasting pan to seal in the moisture.

Using 10 minutes per pound, bake for 1 to 2 hours until temperature reaches 135 degrees.  Remove from oven.  Cut off rind and excess fat.  Score remaining fat  surface of ham into diamonds, but do not pierce meat.  I know most folks poke a whole clove into each diamond at this point, but I am not a fan of cloves, so I skip this traditional decoration.
