Glazed ham is delicious and one of our favorites.

Honey Bourbon Glazed Ham

Kentucky honey bourbon glazed ham will quickly become a favorite way to prepare any ham for any holiday.  We love ham anytime and we especially love our Kentucky Honey Bourbon Glazed Ham.  We always have ham for the holidays. I get rave reviews on this recipe. You can check out the comments, too. You might also like our recipe for crock pot ham.

There are some rules and tips to follow when baking ham.

First of all a ham with the bone in it will be more flavorful.

A fully cooked ham can be eaten right from the package but the flavor can be enhanced by heating and adding a glaze.

Most likely you won’t find a ham that has not been cooked to some degree in the store.  Hams are usually partially or fully cooked when you buy them.

Allow 1/4 pound of ham per person for a boneless ham.  Remember to consider the weight of the bone for a bone-in-ham.

You should allow 20 minutes baking time per pound in a 350 degree oven for a partially cooked ham.  If the ham is fully cooked allow 10 minutes per pound to heat.  Allow 35 to 40 minutes per pound for uncooked hams.

Place the cut side down in the pan when cooking and I baste mine about every 20 minutes.  The ham should reach 160 degrees to be ready for serving.

This is the glaze I use to cook my glazed ham.

1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup molasses
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/4 cup bourbon (preferably Kentucky bourbon!)
Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl and baste ham with mixture every 20 minutes while cooking. 
Once cooked remove ham from pan, slice and pour liquid over ham, serve.  Enjoy!
 
Note:  I always trim off the excess fat and freeze along with the ham hock to use for seasoning in recipes.
