Ingredients
  •  
    Olive oil, for pan
  • 1  8 - 10  pound 
    fully cooked shank end bone-in ham
  • 6   tablespoons 
    firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 3   tablespoons 
    minced garlic
  • 1 1/2  tablespoons 
    ground cumin
  • 1   cup 
    Dijon mustard
  • 1/2  cup 
    apple cider
  • 1/2  cup 
    maple syrup
Directions
1.
Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Lightly oil a shallow baking pan. Place ham, cut side down, on prepared pan and let stand at room temperature 1 hour. Whisk together sugar, garlic, and cumin until combined well. Score skin of ham in a crosshatch pattern and rub with spice mixture.
2.
Bake in middle of oven until an instant-read thermometer inserted in center of ham (without touching bone) registers 140 degree F, about 2-1/2 hours. Cover ham loosely with foil and let stand while making sauce.
3.
Whisk together mustard, cider, and maple syrup in a bowl, salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a gravy boat.
4.
Carve ham into 1/8-inch-thick slices and serve with sauce. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
