How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Remove skin from ham, and trim fat to 1/4-inch thickness. Make shallow cuts in fat 1 inch apart in a diamond pattern; insert cloves in centers of diamonds. Place ham in an aluminum foil-lined 13- x 9-inch pan.

Step 2

Stir together brown sugar and next 4 ingredients; spoon over ham.

Step 3

Bake at 350° on lowest oven rack 2 hours and 30 minutes, basting with pan juices every 30 minutes. Shield ham with foil after 1 hour to prevent excessive browning. Remove ham from oven, and let stand 30 minutes.

Step 4


Step 5

Honey-Bourbon Boneless Glazed Ham: Substitute 1 (4-lb.) smoked, fully cooked boneless ham for bone-in. Reduce cloves to 3 (do not insert into ham). Stir together brown sugar mixture as directed in Step 2; stir in cloves. Place ham in a foil-lined 13- x 9-inch pan. Pour sauce over ham. Bake as directed, reducing bake time to 1 hour and basting every 30 minutes. Makes 10 servings. Hands-on time: 10 min.; Total time: 1 hr., 10 min.

This was a hit with the entire family (2 years to 68 years)and worthy of a special occasion. Everyone loved the glaze but I think a recipe like this will ultimately depend on the quality of the ham. I didn't have cajun mustard so used a mix of what I did have, which was dijon, stone ground and yellow mustards. Didn't seem to hurt at all.

I used this glaze on my Easter ham!!! SOOOOOOOOOOO good. I did cut back just a little on the bourbon since this was the first time to make it.I didn't use cloves either because none of us like them. But, even with the full recipe I think it would be fine! Yummmy!
