This is an easy and delicious glaze to use on your holiday dinner ham.


  • 1 fully cooked ham, about 6 to 8 pounds
  • whole cloves, optional
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cola
  • 1 tablespoon brown or Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Place ham, fat side up, on rack in a foil-lined roasting pan; score fat and stud with cloves, if desired. Cook at 325° for about 18 minutes per pound, until meat thermometer or instant read thermometer registers 148°. If your ham is labeled Ready to Cook, follow packaging directions. Combine maple syrup, brown sugar, cola, mustard, ginger, and cinnamon in saucepan; bring to a simmer and continue cooking over low heat for about 2 minutes. About 20 minutes before the ham is done, spoon about half of the glaze over top of ham, then about 10 minutes before done, spread remaining glaze over ham.

Serves 8 to 10.
