DUTCH OVEN               HAM  

         Dutch Oven Ham  - Quick prep with simple ingredients - Uses a pre-cooked inexpensive ham - Delicious leftovers

    ingredients

– Pre-cooked ham – Dijon mustard – maple syrup (or sugar free maple syrup) – brown sugar (or sugar free brown sugar) – orange juice

– We are using a semi-boneless pre-cooked ham that just needs glazing and reheating. My label said butt half ham. There are also smoked and spiral ham available. – For a sugar free version of the maple syrup glaze, I used Keystone Pantry brown sugar (from Amazon). And I used Lakanto sugar free maple syrup.

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. 2. Using the long end of a meat thermometer, carefully poke about 15 holes into the ham.  Place ham, cut side down,  in dutch oven. 3. Stir together the glaze mixture and slowly poor over the ham. 

4.  Baste the ham with the glaze several times to fully coat. 5.  Cover with lid and bake for approximately 1 hour.  6. Uncover the dutch oven for the last 30 minutes.  Baste again. 7. Ham is done when it reaches 140°F with an internal meat thermometer.

               RECIPE TIPSBe sure to read the label and make sure it says precooked, fully cooked or ready to eat. If it is not cooked it will take much longer. A spiral-cut ham will take less time to heat. – Some hams will come with a package of ready-made glaze. You can use that if you want but I prefer my homemade glaze since it's not overly sweet. – If you like a thicker, sweeter glaze, you should double the glaze ingredients. Pour into a small saucepan and bring to a low boil for 1-2 minutes, stirring well. The glaze will thicken as it cooks.
