Recipe for the most delicious Bourbon Molasses Glazed Ham – sweet, crunchy, salty, and completely addictive with a subtle smoky flavor! 

Bourbon molasses glazed ham- this is so delicious and the best way to make baked ham!

 

Around this time last year, my husband’s friend asked if we’d like to purchase a hog from him. He has a small family farm, and was going to be raising some all-natural, hormone-free pigs for friends- and we jumped at the chance.

A few weeks before Christmas, we got to chose our cuts from a small, local butcher- and we picked up all of our cuts just before Christmas.

When we went through our haul, we noticed four beautiful pre-smoked hams that were neatly frozen and ready for special holidays.

My husband looked far and wide for ideas on how he wanted to cook the ham- and as I have a mild allergy to mustard seed (mustard makes my eyes and lips swell- it’s comical but annoying and I’m always afraid of a severe reaction), most of the recipes he found were out.

 

 

This ham is so good- and so easy to make at home!

 

We did find a few tips and tricks to make this recipe perfect for us- we also made it with a much, much bigger ham.

 

This is the most delicious glazed ham recipe- SO much flavor!

 

Luke’s tips:

  • Make sure you use a disposable foil pan- we lost a cookie sheet to this ham – the molasses dripped through our foil coating and was so thick and sludge-like, it was impossible to scrape off!
  • Score the whole ham, not just the fat- this way you get a delicious glaze all the way through!
  • If you don’t have a roasting rack with a wire insert, use a cookie cooling sheet! It really helps to have the ham up off the glaze, and setting a cookie rack inside the pan is a perfect solution!
