Deer Lodge, MT
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).

A glaze takes a baked ham from basic to amazing! The flavors of bourbon and cherry juice are different than other ham glaze recipes we've seen and used. It's thick and sweet. Mixed with the savory ham it's just delicious. This is a delicious glaze for a holiday ham. Guests will be wondering what the unique flavor it. It's also a great recipe for a beginner cook because there are very few ingredients.
