Dijon Maple Glazed Ham

Prepare a delicious holiday ham with a sweet dijon maple glaze that has amazing flavor to complement your Thanksgiving meal. 

While we have a delicious honey-glazed ham recipe on the blog that was created by Safeway, we also wanted to provide a Dijon maple-glazed ham, which is an equally delicious way to prepare a holiday ham.  This maple glaze gives the ham a richer flavor with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and orange. 

It’s the ultimate holiday ham, whether you are serving for Friendsgiving, Thanksgiving, a holiday party, or Christmas. 

Pick up Cook’s Bone-in Ham Shanks on sale now at Safeway for just $.97/lb. to make this delightful holiday ham.   

The price of the ham can also contribute to your Free Thanksgiving turkey from Safeway so you can offer two protein options to your dinner guests. 

Ham Butt or Ham Shank – What’s the Difference and Which Should You Choose?

When you opt for bone-in ham, you’ll need to consider the part of the ham you buy. 

Both cuts come from the leg.  The shank ham comes from the lower portion of the leg, while the butt end is found just above it.

  • The shank end (or leg portion) sports that classic ham profile, so it’s a good choice for a picture-perfect table. The meat tends to be leaner, and it has one long bone, which makes carving easier.
  • The butt end (the top half of the ham) has more tender, fattier meat, lending a richer flavor. However, it does have a T-shaped bone inside that can be tricky to carve around.

I’ve always chosen a shank portion and never had any complaints.  Be sure to save the ham bone once you’ve sliced the meat.  It makes for the most amazing broth and ham soup. 

While a spiral sliced ham is also a great option, it is more expensive and it can dry out because it’s already sliced.  This glaze can absolutely be used on a spiral sliced ham as well. 

Ingredients in Dijon Maple Glazed Ham

  • 9 – 10 lb. bone-in ham shank or leg
  • 1 cup water
  • 20-30 whole cloves

Ham Glaze 

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

How to Make a Dijon Maple Glazed Ham

Preheat the oven to 325° F. 

Place ham into a roasting pan and pour 1 cup of water into the pan.

Score the ham diagonally with a sharp knife, just through the top of the smoked ham in two directions, creating a diamond pattern.  

Insert whole cloves into the center of the scored diamond shapes. 

In a small saucepan, mix together the maple syrup, brown sugar, orange juice, mustard, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Simmer for 2-3 minutes over medium-low heat, stirring often, until the brown sugar is dissolved. 

Brush the ham with the glaze using a pastry brush, getting into the cracks and crevices.  You will have some glaze leftover that will be used for basting the ham while cooking. 

Place the ham into the oven uncovered and cook for 1 hour and 30 minutes.  Baste the ham with the remaining glaze every 30 minutes. 

Let the ham rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
