Baked Ham with Bourbon Glaze

(from cokerlj’s recipe box)

Haven’t tried.
I prefer to boil my ham…bet you could use this glaze after boiling ham and just put in oven to set glaze.

  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup bourbon
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 6-8 pound smoked ham half


  1. Microwave honey and molasses in a 1 quart microwave-safe dish at high for 1 minute. Whisk to blend.

  2. Whisk in bourbon, orange juice and mustard.

  3. Remove skin and excess fat from ham and place ham in a roasting pan. I prefer to leave the skin on and “score” or cut, making diamond shapes on top of ham.

  4. Bake at 235 degrees on lower oven rack for 1 1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 140 degrees, basting occasionally with honey mixture.

  5. Bring drippings and remaining glaze to a boil in a small sauce pan. Remove from heat and serve with sliced ham.

  6. Garnish if desired with fresh herb sprigs.
