Maple Citrus Glazed Ham
For The Ham
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove any skin from the ham, leaving a layer of fat underneath. Lightly cut diamonds into the fat, covering the surface of the ham. Place a clove into the points of each diamond. Place the ham into the bottom of a large roasting pan.
- Place the maple syrup, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, cinnamon, ginger, garlic powder, red pepper flakes and nutmeg in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Whisk in the orange juice, orange zest, grapefruit juice and grapefruit zest. Pour half of the mixture over the ham.
- Place the ham in the preheated oven, and roast until hot throughout, about 1 1/2 hours. Using the other half of the maple syrup mixture, baste the ham every 30 minutes while cooking.
- Remove the ham from the oven and let rest 15-30 minutes before serving. Using the pan juices in the bottom of the pan, continue basting every few minutes while resting. Slice for serving.
For The Biscuits
- While the ham is roasting, make the biscuits. Place the flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl. Cut the butter into 1/2-inch slices and toss in the flour mixture. Using a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the flour into pea sized pieces. Stir in the rosemary. Add buttermilk and stir just until combined.
- Lightly flour a work surface. Turn the dough out onto the work surface and lightly knead to bring the dough together. Roll the dough out until it is about 1 inch thick. Cut the dough in half and stack on top of the other half, creating layers. Roll the dough out until the dough is about 1 1/2 inches thick. Repeat this process 2 more times, creating multiple layers. Using a 2-inch round biscuit cutter, punch straight down to cut out biscuits. Place the biscuits close together on sheet pan and place in refrigerator until ready to bake.
- While the ham is resting, increase oven temperature to 425°F. Place the biscuits on the sheet pan in the oven and cook until browned on top, about 15-18 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool a few minutes before serving.
For The Aioli
Place the mayonnaise, whole grain mustard and garlic in a small bowl and stir to combine. Serve alongside the sliced ham and biscuits to make sandwiches.
