US Wellness Shopping List: 2.5 lb boneless Ham


For the rub:

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

For the glaze:

  • 1 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • zest of 1/2 an orange
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 F and place the ham in a roasting; cut some paper thin slices in the ham (I did about 10).
  2. Combine the rub mixture in a bowl and then rub all over the ham. Make sure that some of the rub drop between the slices; Cover the ham with foil then place in the oven for 1-1.15 hrs-ish.
  3. When the ham is 30 min out from cooking, put a small saute pan over medium heat and whisk in all the glaze ingredients; Let reduce and keep stirring for 25 min, stirring every couple minutes to keep from sticking.
  4. When the ham is done cooking, remove the foil and drizzle about half the glaze on top of the entire ham.
  5. Once lathered, increase oven heat to 400 F and then put ham back in the oven for another 30 more min. If the ham looks a little dry still, feel free to add a few more tbsp of maple syrup on top.
  6. After the ham has visually browned on the outside, take out of the oven then drizzle the rest of the glaze on top.
  7. Serve!
