I've tried many ham glaze recipes and my husband didn't really care for any of them, so I came up with this glaze that incorporates his favorites -- bourbon and cherry. It's very simple and very tasty, and my husband just loves it (as do I).

Stove Top


1 c
brown sugar
1/4 c
cherry juice
1/4 c
bourbon (my preference is jim beam because of its more smoky taste)


1In a small saucepan, mix all ingredients together and bring to a boil, stirring constantly, making sure mixture is "saucy." You can make this ahead of time and let sit until you are ready to pour it over the ham.
2Pour glaze over ham 1 hour before ham is done. Uncover ham for the last 20 minutes and baste with glaze at least twice.
