  • 1 spiral sliced ham
  • For the glaze:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 8-10 ounce  of pineapple juice or orange juice (whatever your preference)
  • 1 ½ cups firmly packed light brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon  cinnamon
  • 1 bay leaf
  • ½ cup dark rum
  • ⅛  to ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Pinch of kosher salt


  • Preheat an oven to 350°F.
  • Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
  • Add pineapple juice or orange juice, light brown sugar, cinnamon and bay leaf. Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer until mixture has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and add rum, cayenne, and salt.
  • Warm the ham in the oven according to the package directions. About half way through heating, brush the ham evenly with some of the glaze.
  • Return the ham to the oven and bake until done, brushing it with the remaining glaze every 15 minutes.
  • Once removed from oven, let the ham sit to rest then carve.
