Honey Maple Glazed Baked Ham

By Mark Steele, Executive Chef, Algonquin College Food & Beverage Services

Anyone who knows my cooking style can attest that I’m a huge fan of maple syrup. I’m lucky if a litre lasts more than a couple weeks at my house, between the Sunday morning pancakes and everything else I add it to.

This is the best time of year to experience maple syrup right in its natural habitat: the cabane à sucre. There are hundreds of these rustic “sugar cabins” littered across Quebec, which is the world’s number one producer of maple syrup.
