It’s spring, the snow is melting and Easter is just around the corner.
All indicators are there in the universe: it’s the perfect time to revisit the famous Quebec maple ham. At La Pimenterie, we think this classic deserves a little spice!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 picnic smoked pork shoulder with bone, 3.5 kg (about 7 3/4 lb)
  • 5 cloves
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 250 mL (1 cup) maple syrup
  • 30 mL (2 tbsp.) mustard powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste

PREPARATION

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).
  • Remove excess fat from pork shoulder. Insert cloves into pork shoulder.
  • Place pork shoulder in a large cast iron casserole dish. Spread the onion around the shoulder.
  • In a bowl, mix regular maple syrup with mustard powder and 250 mL (1 cup) water. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Pour the maple mixture over the shoulder.
  • Cover and bake for 2 to 2 1/2 hours, basting ham with pan juices every 30 minutes.
  • Top ham with Chipotle Maple Syrup before serving! If you really want more kick, try the Bhut Jolokia.You can also add a little Colonel’s Hot Sauce, because we all know that ham and mustard is a great love story that just won’t die.
    Enjoy your meal!
