This is an easy and delicious glaze to use on your holiday dinner ham. This recipe makes the perfect ham for your Thanksgiving or winter get together and is enough for the whole family (plus some!)


  • 1 fully cooked ham, about 6 to 8 poundsWhole 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

Steps to Make It

  1. Place the ham, fat side up, on a rack in a foil-lined roasting pan; score fat and stud with cloves, if desired.

  2. Cook in a preheated 325 F oven for about 18 minutes per pound, until meat thermometer or instant-read thermometer, registers 148 F. If your ham is labeled "Ready to Cook," follow packaging directions.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
