  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons sage ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard or whole grain
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 10 pound ham spiral cut, bone-in, pre-cooked


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  • In a medium saucepan, combine brown sugar, sage, cinnamon, salt, mustard, and apple juice. 
  • Bring up to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer and simmer uncovered until reduced by about one third, 5-8 minutes. 
  • Place ham in a roasting pan. Brush glaze over ham, being sure to get it in between the layers of ham. 
  • Bake for about 1 hour and 40 minutes, or until ham is warmed through and darkened on top (about 10 minutes per pound). Glaze ham every 30-45 minutes, being sure the ham is not drying out. Cover with foil, if necessary. 
  • Finish ham with a final brush of glaze and let rest 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
