Baked Ham with Spiced Apples and Pears
8-lb smoked, fully-cooked, spiral-cut ham
1 tsp dry mustard
1/4 cup water
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp ground allspice
4 sweet-tart baking apples, cored and halved
4 pears, cored and halved
Preheat the oven to 325°.
Using kitchen twine, wrap the ham first vertically, and then once on each diagonal, making sure to loop around the bottom of the ham, to hold it together. Place the ham in a large, deep roasting pan, cut side down.
Dissolve the dry mustard in the 1/4 cup water. Stir the mustard mixture into the brown sugar, maple syrup, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice.
Brush the maple glaze over the surface of the ham. Arrange the apples and pears around the ham and bake it, uncovered, for 1 hour and 40 min, basting the ham and fruit every 20 min. Loosely tent foil over the ham if it appears to be browning too quickly.
Allow the ham and fruit to cool down slightly before removing the twine and serving warm or at room temperature. Serves 10-12
