What You'll Need

  • 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

How 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.
