Bourbon Ham


As if there was ever any doubt ~ I LOVE bourbon.  I can’t stand to drink it but I do love to cook with it.  I have recipes for bourbon everything, LOL!

I have made this ham several times and I made it again for Christmas Eve.  It gives the ham a really nice flavor.  The recipe makes a ton so you can easily cut it in half and still have plenty to baste with.


Bourbon Ham

1 cup honey
1/2 cup molasses
1 1/4 cups bourbon
1 1/2 cups orange juice
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
6-8 lbs ham, fully cooked

In a microwave safe bowl, microwave honey and molasses at HIGH for 1 minute. Whisk in bourbon, orange juice, and mustard.

Remove any skin and excess fat from the ham and place in a roasting pan. Pour glaze over the ham.

Bake at 325º for 1 1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the ham registers 140º. Baste with glaze in pan every 15 minutes.

Makes 12-14 servings


Happy Cooking!
