Easter is right around the corner, and nothing completes Easter dinner quite like a baked ham. We took this staple and dressed it up ever so slightly with an apple glaze, and apple and fig garnish (which can also serve as a side dish, FYI!).
Our Granny Smith apples have the perfect amount of tartness to balance the sweetness of the rest of the glaze. Make this beautiful ham and you’re sure to enjoy your holiday dinner!
- Preheat oven to 325°.
- While oven is pre-heating, add 1 ¼ cup apple cider, brown sugar, ½ tsp allspice, nutmeg, and most of your cinnamon to a medium saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil and then reduce to medium-low heat. Let simmer for 10-15 minutes or until mixture thickens.
- Pour remaining ½ cup of apple cider onto a baking dish and then place ham on top, fat side up. Brush half of your glaze over the ham – make sure to get inside of slices. Cover with foil and bake 15 minutes per lb. of ham.
- When you have 30-40 minutes left of baking, remove the ham from the oven.
- Toss sliced apples and figs in ½ tsp of allspice and remainder of cinnamon.
- Add onion, tossed apples and figs to your roasting pan around the ham. Brush the remaining glaze on the ham. Put back into the oven for the remainder of cook time.
- Ham is done when internal temperature reads 145° and apples are tender. Enjoy!
