Rum and Cinnamon Glazed Ham

Ok, so I am in a constant search for new recipes and ideas that can celebrate rum as a flavour beyond the occasional rum and coke, old fashioned rum punch, or Christmas cake. The Rum and Cinnamon Glazed Ham recipe I have here originally used Bourbon as the spirit. Since Rum and Bourbon can sometimes taste like sister spirits, Rum is a perfect substitute. Throw in brown sugar, cinnamon and a little yellow mustard. Great stuff! Take this recipe and have fun. Make tweaks and call it your own!


  • 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.
