I plan to use this recipe for our Easter ham. Our family from Lexington, KY are coming to visit... so it seemed appropriate. :)

This glaze is going to add so much flavor to your holiday ham. The apple juice helps to bring out the sweet, smoky flavor in the bourbon. But, the bourbon flavor isn't overpowering. Honey and brown sugar raise the sweetness factor and caramelize beautifully on the baked ham. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Bourbon Honey Ham Glaze

Step-by-Step

  1. Place ham on a baking pan, fat side up. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes per pound or follow package directions.
  2. While ham is baking, in a saucepan combine the bourbon and apple juice and bring to a boil. Cook over medium to medium-high heat until reduced to about ½ cup.
  3. Remove from heat and add brown sugar, honey, and cayenne pepper. Stir to form a paste.
  4. Remove the ham from the oven about 30 minutes before it is finished cooking.
  5. Score the ham, if it is not already scored. You just want to slice through the very outer layer of the ham to help the glaze soak in.
  6. Rub paste all over the top and sides of the ham.
  7. Bake 20-30 minutes more or until the glaze is glossy and darkened.
  8. Let ham sit a few minutes before slicing.
