Looking for a show stopping dinner idea? This easy low FODMAP glazed ham will be the talk of your holiday table!
I feel like I should pre-frame this post by telling you that my siblings and I are a die-hard holiday turkey fans!
Once when I was a tiny human, we were visiting my grandparents in Ottawa over the easter weekend. My mom packed all of us in the minivan on Easter Monday and after a 6 hour car ride made us a lovely holiday dinner… of ham.
To this day, some 20 years later, my brothers and sisters and I still bring up “that time mom made ham!” Honestly, I don't think we'll ever get over it.
But this year is weird and you guys have been asking for recipes that will help you feel festive, but also help you start new traditions! So, here is the first of several fancy pants dinners to help you shake up the holiday season!
Full disclosure, I stole this recipe from my mother-in-law. We lived with her for a year while my husband and I renovated our current house and she was shocked that I had never tried a picnic ham! Once I tried it, I was hooked!! So when I started getting requests for fun holiday ideas, I knew this recipe was going to be a show stopper!
So whether you're planning a masked holiday extravaganza, cooking up new traditions, or keeping it simple with the fam, this easy peasy ham will make your kitchen feel merry and bright!

Brace your taste buds for this mouthwatering low FODMAP glazed ham!
- 3–5 lb smoked picnic ham (with rind)
- 3/4 cup water
- 2 oranges, peeled
- 1 + 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 1/2 cup vinegar
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 2 tbsp yellow mustard
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- Preheat your oven to 350°F and place your ham (fatty side up) in a large roasting pan or baking dish with 3/4 cup of water. Cover the ham with foil and roast for 1 hour.
- Meanwhile, stick the rest of the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Set the glaze aside.
- After an hour, take off the foil and peel off the rind. With a sharp knife, cut crisis crosses across the fat cap (about 1/2″ deep). Generously brush the ham with glaze, making sure you get it into all the nooks and crannies! Bake for another 2 hours, brushing the meat with glaze again at the 1-hour mark and the 1.5-hour mark. The ham is ready when the fat starts to crisp and the glaze has caramelized. Let the ham rest for 5 – 10 minutes before carving.
