This roast maple ham is so delicious and really, so very easy to make. A meal like this is wonderful for Sunday dinners and it’s easy to make lots so there will be leftovers. You can see the whole recipe here.
- 1 ham about 4 pounds
- Whole cloves
- Pure maple syrup
- Salt and pepper
Turn your oven on to 350°F.
Score your ham crosswise in each direction.
Put the whole cloves in the slits of the ham.
Put the ham in a large roasting pan; add ½ inch water.
Pour pure maple syrup on top and brush it in all over the ham. Use as much as you like. Baste a little more on part way through roasting and again at the end when you remove from the oven.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper and put it in the oven.
Roast for about two hours.
After removing the ham from the oven, let it rest on the counter for about 20 minutes before carving.
Remove the cloves before serving.
