1 (5 pound)
fully-cooked, bone-in ham
red wine vinegar
For this recipe, use a generous tablespoon of bourbon and omit the red wine vinegar. I used this recipe for sliced baked ham (fully cooked hickory smoked pit ham) that I served to more than 150 people at a function. Each piece of ham was layered in a pan and got a generous helping of sauce in which to marinate through the heating process, which was kept covered on low temperature to heat. For serving, I spashed each plate with a line of the sauce to punctuate and freshen the flavor. This recipe was a huge success...and everyone wanted to know what the "secret" ingredient was!
I made a variation of this for a ham over the holidays. We added some honey..it was pretty tasty. Next time we won't shy away from the strong flavors in this recipe...it really does add great flavor to the ham.
This was delicious! I've never ventured from our traditional pinapple topped ham until this recipe!.. When mixing the glaze for the top, I almost didn't add the dry mustard because I'd already put in the dijon and I thought it smelled too mustardy, but I did add it and I'm so glad!... While cooking the mustard mellows and the sweet of the maple syrup comes through... I was wishing for more mustard taste as I ate it!.. Next time I think I'll score the ham and let the glaze marinade for a few hours, then cover with foil for the first 30 min. then uncover to nicely brown for the rest of the time!...
Good as is, but would have preferred a stronger maple flavor, even though I used Grade B pure maple syrup. I will probably increase the ratio of syrup to the other ingredients if I make this again.
This recipe totally kicked the honey glazed ham recipes out of my recipe box. I'm with Travelerdude though; must substitute Jim Beam for the wine vinegar. We've got the authentic maple syrup straight from trips to Quebec and you've gotta use good quality syrup. This is SO simple and SO tasty - no way to mess it up. THANKS for a great dish.
I agree with both of the other reviews. This is really tasty, and SUPER easy with ingredients you pretty much always have on hand. I would DEFINITELY suggest lining the roasting pan with foil, as burned on sugar is extremely difficult to battle. I just made this tonight and thus haven't won the battle yet - maybe it'd be easier to just buy a new pan? Will definitely use this recipe again.
This was a good glaze. My ham was almost 10 pounds, so I had to bake it longer and I think I should have put it in an oven bag. It got a little crispy. But I thought the glaze added a nice, subtle flavor and was very easy.
The taste was fantastic. My boyfriend loved it! I did not buy whole ham; I used thick sliced ham from the deli (about 3 slices). It came out really nice
