  • 1 boneless fully cooked ham (5 pounds)
  • 1 can (14 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons ground mustard


  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Line a roasting pan with foil. Place ham on a rack in prepared pan. Bake, covered, 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, whisk remaining ingredients until blended. Remove 1 cup mixture for glaze; reserve remaining mixture for sauce. Brush ham with some of the glaze mixture. Bake, uncovered, until a thermometer reads 140°, 35-45 minutes, brushing every 10 minutes with remaining glaze.
  3. Warm reserved sauce mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally; serve with ham.
