Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 1 hr 45 mins
Total Time 2 hrs
Servings 12 servings (depending on size of ham)


  • Meat thermometer


  • 7-10 pound spiral sliced ham
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 1 cup brown sugar light or dark will work
  • 1 cup pure maple syrup


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat combine the apple juice, brown sugar, and maple syrup. Bring to a low boil then reduce heat to medium low and simmer for approximately 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Glaze is ready when it's thickened and shiny.
  • Place ham in a baking greased baking dish and coat with half of the glaze mixture. Cover pan with foil, tenting so foil does not touch the ham, and bake for approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until a thermometer inserted at the thickest part of the ham reads 140 degrees F.
  • Pour remaining glaze over the top of ham, and return to oven, uncovered. Turn temperature to 450 degrees and bake for another 5-7 minutes, keeping a close eye on it to prevent burning. When glaze is turning dark and caramelizing (but not burning!) remove from oven. Serve and enjoy.
