Maple Glazed Ham, THM S, Keto, SF, DF

Ham is a favorite dish to serve for the Christmas and Easter Holidays. A sugar-free Maple Glaze is just perfect on the spiral cut ham.

Spiral cut hams are so easy to serve. Most of the carving is already done for you. Another plus is that the glaze can soak into the ham better with more of the surface exposed. Spiral hams are also fully cooked so you you basically just want to warm them to serving temperature.

Maple Glazed Ham, THM S, Keto, SF, DF

  • 1 (8-10 pounds) spiral cut ham, discard the glaze package with the ham
  • Glaze:
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 5 tablespoons Brown Sugar Sweetener Substitute or Gentle Sweet
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard powder
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Maple Extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon Brown Sugar Extract
  • pinch allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthum gum
  • Place ham in to a large baking roaster…I open the package of ham in my roaster so that the roaster catches all the juice that is in the package with the ham. Blend the glaze ingredients together. Brush half of the glaze of the ham. Cove or tent the ham with foil. Bake ham following the instructions on the package. Brush the remaining glaze of the ham after it have been baking for 30 minutes. Continue basing the ham every 30 minutes using the broth in the baking pan. Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part reads 140°, about 1 ½ to 2 hours. Remove ham from the oven and allow it to rest 15-20 minutes. 12-14 servings
  • Since spiral hams are already fully cooked, you basically just want to warm it through, infuse it with flavor, and crisp up the edges, all while avoiding drying it out. 10 to 12 minutes per pound is all the time needed.

I open the package of ham in my baking dish so that it catches all the juice that are in the package. As you can see, I have placed the ham on a rack in my roaster.

For the glaze, I blend all the ingredients together with my hand blender until they are all combined. I brush half of the glaze on the ham before baking. Bake the ham for 30 minutes and brush the remaining glaze over it.

Continue basing the ham every 30 minutes using the broth in the baking pan. Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part reads 140°, about 1 ½ to 2 hours. Remove ham from the oven and allow it to rest 15-20 minutes.

The Cranberry Glazed Ham pictured below is another great way to make a spiral cut ham. The tartness of the cranberries helps to offset the saltiness of the ham.

I have a large Princess House Roaster but the above roaster works very well to roast a ham.

I love Olive Nation Brown Sugar Extract because it tastes so much like regular brown sugar. I use it to make my homemade Brown Sugar Sweetener Substitute.

Maple Extract give this ham a wonderful flavor without all the sugar for maple syrup.

Gentle Sweet…is a sweetener that tastes very similar to sugar. This blend is so worth it when transiting to sugar-free.
