Sweet and Spicy Glazed Ham

It's hard to make this great Easter staple healthy but using a low-sodium ham and great spices is a great start:-)

Sweet and Spicy Glazed Ham

8 lb. Ham, smoked or cured, low sodium, lean, cooked
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup maple-flavored syrup
1/2 tsp ground mustard
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1 dash ground nutmeg

1. Heat oven to 325°F. Line shallow roasting pan with foil. Place ham, cut side down, on rack in pan. Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so tip is in thickest part of ham and does not touch bone.

2. Bake uncovered about 1 hour 30 minutes or until thermometer reads 135°F to 140°F. Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Brush over ham during last 30 minutes of baking.

3. Cover ham loosely with foil and let stand 10 to 15 minutes for easier carving.

I've never glazed a ham because the packet that comes with it looks kinda gross. I'm SO going to make my own glaze this year! And I feel like an idiot for not thinking of doing it homemade before now. So thank you, not only for a great recipe, but for reminding me to do it myself in the first place!
