If you're looking to add a little extra flavor to your rum ham, try adding some sliced pineapples or cherries to the top of the ham before baking. You can also make a delicious rum sauce by heating up some of the glaze in a saucepan and adding a little bit of cornstarch to thicken it up.

When cooking the ham, make sure to baste it every 20 minutes to keep it moist and flavorful. And don't forget to let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing to allow the juices to redistribute.
