Baked Ham with Sweet Bourbon-Mustard Glaze

  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup bourbon
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 ham half about 6 to 8 pounds -- fully cooked

Combine the honey and molasses; heat in the microwave or in a pan on the stove top.

Stir in the bourbon, orange juice, and mustard.

Remove all but about 1/4-inch of fat from the ham, then place it in a roasting pan. Bake the ham at 325° F for about 1 1/2 hours, or until a meat thermometer reaches 140° F degrees (about 10 minutes per pound). Baste the ham occasionally with the honey-bourbon mixture.

Transfer the drippings to a saucepan and add the remaining honey mixture; bring to a boil. Slice the ham and serve with the glaze.
