Maple Glazed Ham

  • Author: Krista
  • Total Time: 2 hours 20 minutes
  • Yield: 6 Servings 1x


A maple glazed ham has been coated in a sweet and savory glaze made with maple syrup. The glaze is typically made by combining maple syrup with brown sugar, mustard, and other ingredients such as vinegar or Worcestershire sauce. The ham is then baked in the oven until the glaze is caramelized and the ham is heated through. Maple glazed ham is a popular dish for holiday meals and other special occasions. It can be served as a main course with sides such as mashed potatoes, gravy, and vegetables, or it can be sliced and served as part of a charcuterie board or sandwiches.


Units Scale
  • 1 fully cooked bone-in ham (810 pounds)
  • 1 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Place the ham in a roasting pan and add about 1 inch of water to the bottom of the pan.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine the maple syrup, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved.
  4. Brush the maple syrup mixture over the top and sides of the ham.
  5. Cover the pan with foil and bake the ham for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until it is heated through.
  6. Remove the foil and continue to bake the ham for an additional 15-30 minutes, or until the glaze is caramelized and the ham is nicely browned.
  7. Let the ham rest for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving.


  1. Choose the right size ham: When choosing a ham for baking, it’s important to select one that is the right size for your needs. A good rule of thumb is to plan for about 1/2 pound of ham per person, which will give you enough for both the main meal and leftovers.
  2. Preheat the oven: Preheating the oven is an important step when baking a ham, as it ensures that the ham will cook evenly and thoroughly. Be sure to allow enough time for the oven to fully preheat before placing the ham in the oven.
  3. Use a meat thermometer: A meat thermometer is a useful tool for ensuring that the ham is cooked to the right temperature. For a fully cooked ham, the internal temperature should be at least 140°F.
  4. Baste the ham: Basting the ham with a mixture of pan juices, glaze, or other liquids helps to keep it moist and flavorful as it cooks. Be sure to baste the ham every 30 minutes or so to keep it from drying out.
  5. Let the ham rest: After the ham is done cooking, it’s important to let it rest for about 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving. This allows the juices to redistribute and makes the ham easier to slice.
