Total time 1 hr, 50 mins
Yield Makes 12 to 14 servings


  • 1 cup honey

  • 1/2 cup bourbon
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 (6- to 8-lb.) smoked fully cooked, semiboneless ham

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Microwave honey and molasses in a 1-qt. microwave-safe dish at HIGH 1 minute; whisk until blended. Whisk in bourbon, orange juice, and mustard.

  2. Remove skin and excess fat from ham, and place ham in a roasting pan.
