Maple Glazed Ham Recipe with Pomegranate Pineapple Reduction

I have two very special things to share in this post today.  First comes a delicious recipe JUST in time for Easter and Spring and any time you want a good glazed ham recipe. Then, after the recipe, you can meet my new friends from Ziplist and find out all about their awesomeness.  (That’s totally a word, I’m sure of it).

Maple Glazed Ham Recipe with Pomegranate and Pineapple reduction

maple-glazed-ham

Ingredients:

 

Spiral cut ham, ours was a little over 8 pounds
1 small pomegranate
1.5 cups of fresh pineapple
1 cup pure maple syrup
a few sprigs of fresh herbs, we used thyme

Directions:

Remove the pith from the pomegranate, being sure all of the white fleshy pieces are out.

Cut your fresh cut pineapple into 1-2 inch chunks.

Reserve about a 1/2 cup total of the fruit mixture.

Add fruit and washed fresh herbs to your blender (we used a stick blender and the tall cup that came with it).

Puree until smooth then place in and let reduce for 10-15 minutes.

This is a great time to preheat your oven to 325 degrees and place your ham in the roasting pan.

Smother your ham with the pure maple syrup, pouring slowly, then add the fruit reduction and top with remaining 1/2 cup of whole fruit.

Cover loosely with tinfoil and cook about 12 minutes per pound.

The beauty of most store bought hams is that they are precooked, so we’re really just reheating and glazing.

With about a half hour left to cook, remove tinfoil.  Enjoy!
