Balsamic Glazed Ham

1 8-10 pound bone-in picnic or spiral ham
½ cup Balsamic Vinegar
¼ cup Maple Syrup - Granulated
2 Tbsp. Mustard -Yellow Ground
1 tsp. Chipotle Pepper Powder (or to taste)
PREHEAT oven to 300°F.

REMOVE skin and excess fat from ham.

PLACE in a baking dish at least 2 inches deep.

SCORE ham in a crisscross pattern on the top.

COVER tightly with foil.

BAKE for 2-2½ hrs until the internal temperature reaches 120°F.

WHILE the ham is cooking, boil the balsamic vinegar over medium heat in a small saucepan until reduced by 1/3, about 10-15 mins.

ADD the Maple Syrup - Granulated, Mustard - Yellow Ground, and Chipotle Pepper Powder and simmer on low heat for a few mins. Remove from heat and set aside.

REMOVE ham from the oven and increase the temperature to 350°F.

GLAZE ham with 1/3 of the syrup and return to preheated oven for 10 mins.

REMOVE and glaze again, then return to the oven for another 10 minutes.

GLAZE again and let rest for 15 minutes, then carve and serve!

A spiral sliced ham can also be used, just skip the scoring step.
