This is a tasty glazed baked ham, perfect for a big holiday dinner or Sunday gathering.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 4 hours

Total Time: 4 hours, 15 minutes


  • 1 large ready-to-cook smoked ham, about 12 to 16 pounds
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup or Lyle's Golden Syrup
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon prepared Dijon or gourmet mustard, your favorite
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons water


Heat oven to 325°. Line a roasting pan with foil. Wrap the ham in foil, keeping the ham fat side up; place it in the baking pan.

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes per pound, or until a meat thermometer or temperature probe registers about 145°.

Meanwhile make the glaze. In a medium saucepan, combine brown sugar, cinnamon, flour, mustard, and vinegar. Stir over medium-low heat until smooth. Add water and bring to a simmer. Simmer, stirring, for 1 minute.

Remove the foil from the ham and remove excess fat. Score the ham all over the surface, creating a diamond pattern. Return to the oven and continue baking to about 155 to 160°, basting with the glaze mixture frequently.
