From my kitchen to yours - Maple Glazed Ham

With Christmas just around the corner, we are getting ready and making sure all the preparations are covered. We’re almost done with our gifts shopping and its now time to gather up some delicious recipes. And of course, the famous Maple Glazed Ham couldn’t be missing in action. Once again its on top of the requests from our family and friends. I cooked this ham for thanksgiving and let me tell ya…there was none left, none, not even the bone (our ham eating dog had the juiciest part). I’ll be making two of these hams for our holiday dinner.

This is a very simple recipe, so simple even a caveman I can do it. Ha!

So here’s the recipe for you…give it a shot – you’ll thank me later.

  • 1 spiral-sliced half ham (the one wrapped in foil)
  • 1 can of pineapple slices in juice
  • 2 tablespoons of yellow mustard
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of Maple Syrup (plain pancake syrup)
  • 1 jar of maraschino cherries

In a medium bowl, mix the mustard, brown sugar, syrup and part of the pineapple juice reserved (set aside).


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and cook ham for about 30 minutes as directed on the ham package. Once ham is cooked, removed from oven and brush glaze over ham until completely covered. Make sure to brush some of the glaze between the slices of the ham. Place ham back in the oven for 20 minutes.

Optional – you may decorate the ham by arranging the pineapple slices on top of the ham. Use cloves and toothpicks to secure the pineapples. Place a cherry in the center of each pineapple and secure with toothpick.


Your family will love this deliciously juicy maple glazed ham.
