  • ¾ cup maple syrup
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • ¾ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp allspice


  • Start by measuring out all of your ingredients first. There’s nothing worse than trying to find materials when in the middle of a cook.
  • Add all ingredients to a cold saucepan.
  • Bring up to temp over a medium heat, while constantly stirring to avoid burning.
  • Heat for around 15 minutes until all ingredients have mixed together, all sugars have dissolved and the glaze has thickened up to the consistency you like.
  • Once ready, remove from the heat and use.

Serving or apply:

  • A glaze should be applied during the cook.
  • Depending on the sugar content, will dictate how far along in the cooking process it should be applied.
  • If a very large quantity of sugar is in the glaze, like honey, maple syrup and brown sugar, then the glaze should be used in only the last 30 minutes of the cook to avoid burning.
