"This is a delicious combo of about five recipes I found while researching for my first Thanksgiving ham. The empty baking pan afterwards was my best compliment!" — Jennifer

I loved this recipe. I made it for Easter dinner. I made some changes. I omitted the water. After i marinated the ham, I poured the marinade into a sauce pan, let it reduce for ten mintues, and then poured it over the ham before I put it in the oven. Fantastic. Very juicy and very flavorful.
You REALLY have to like bourbon to like this recipe. Apparently I'm not a fan of bourbon. I cooked it according to instructions and it came out mushy, maybe it was the marinating for 8 hours, I don't usually marinate, just pour the glaze on and bake. There was no saving this recipe, the marinade penetrated too deep.
Made this for Christmas dinner, and it was so goooood. The only thing I did different was to add a single serving bottle of cola to the marinade, and omitted the water from the pan since I had the liquid from the cola. This was a real hit, and we'll be having this again, no doubt about it. Thanks for the recipe!
This was awesome! I did change the recipe a bit - I doubled the glaze (without the water) and poured it over a sliced, 4-pound boneless ham, then cooked it in the crock pot on low for about 5-6 hours. It made a simple, delicious Easter ham - excellent flavor.
I made this for our Easter dinner ham which was 12lbs with bone in so I just doubled recipe. I used Candian Club since I didn't have Bourbon but it turned out wonderful very moist and tasty.
Amazing! I will definitely make this again. The only thing I did differently was replace half of the water with apple juice. Great job Jennifer!
I didn't have bourbon so I used Captain Morgan's instead ... this was a hit at my party! People were talking about it still the next day :)
I made this for Christmas dinner this year. I started marinating it after the Christmas Eve Service and started baking it at about 12 for a dinner at 3. The dish was excellent. I was worried about the bourbon over powering the flavor after reading a couple of reviews, and that was not the case. As my wife and I were finishing off the bottle of Pinot Noir, we discussed the possiblity of using a sprial cut ham next year, or the next time I make the dish. Recipe was extremely easy. The biggest challenge was finding a bag big enough. We ended up using a roasting bag. Thank you for the recipe.

This ham makes an elegant dish for any special occasion.
An apricot jam, dry mustard, and brown sugar glaze makes baked ham special.
This recipe for Easter or Christmas ham takes “no fuss” to the extreme.
