This recipe for Cook's Ham comes courtesy of Chef Peter Davis of Henrietta's Table, Boston, Massachusetts. A spiced orange reduction is mixed with maple syrup to become the glaze for this stunning main dish.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1 Cook's® brand Bone-in Spiral Sliced Ham, Butt or Shank Portion Ham, or Half Ham
- 1/2 gallon orange juice
- 2 each star anise
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 3 whole cloves
- 1 cup maple syrup
Prepare and heat ham according to package directions.
To prepare glaze, place the orange juice, star anise, cinnamon and cloves in a sauce pan and heat until reduced to 1 cup. Remove from the stove; add the maple syrup. Strain and cool.
Brush glaze on your Cook's ham 30 minutes before meat is done. Heat ham uncovered for final 30 minutes. Carve ham and serve.
