  • 5 lbs Ham, Bone-in (fully cooked, rind removed, room temperature)
  • 1/3 cup Water
  • 4 Sweet Potato (large, peeled, chopped)
  • 1/4 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsps Dijon Mustard
  • 1 tbsp Rosemary (fresh, chopped)
  • 15 cups Mixed Greens


  • Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C). Place the ham in a baking dish and use a sharp knife to score a diamond pattern over the surface. Fill the dish with the water and cover the ham with foil or a lid. Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the sweet potatoes and cook for about 10 minutes or until soft. Drain the water and mash with a masher. Set aside.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, coconut sugar, dijon mustard, and rosemary.
  • Remove the ham from the oven and increase the temperature to 425°F (220°C). Discard the foil and coat the ham in 1/3 of the glaze, brushing in between the cuts. Return to the oven uncovered and roast for 15 minutes.
  • Repeat with the remaining glaze every 15 minutes until a dark golden-brown crust is formed. Let sit for 20 minutes before slicing.
  • Divide the ham, sweet potato mash, and mixed greens onto plates. Enjoy!
