Rum and Cinnamon Glazed Ham

Rum and Cinnamon Glazed Ham


  • 1 Cup Rum (Pick a sweet amber or dark rum such as Antigua’s Cavalier or Mt. Gay’s regular rum)
  • 1 Cup light brown sugar
  • 2 Cinnamon sticks
  • ¼ Cups yellow mustard
  • 7 Pounds Shoulder Ham
  • ¼ Cups yellow mustard
  • ½ Cup brown sugar


01Preheat oven to 325 F.

02In a medium saucepan, bring Rum, cinnamon sticks, and brown sugar to a simmer. Allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes until sauce becomes slightly thickened. Set aside to cool slightly.

03After the syrup cools, add the mustard and stir to combine.

04Place the baked ham inside a roasting pan. Pour the glaze over the ham
and in between the ham slices and the cinnamon sticks. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cover with aluminum foil completely. Bake for 2 hours or until internal temperature reaches 145 F.

05Allow the ham to sit for 10-15 minutes. Mix the second batch of glaze ingredients. Using a turkey baster or large spoon, baste the ham with the glaze.

06Remove slices from ham and place on desired serving platter. Add a bit more of the glaze on top of the ham if desired.
