Reviews for Bourbon Baked Ham
"Nice flavor. I reduced the amount of molasses, as I use full-flavor molasses and I thought it might be overpowering. I will definitely use this glaze again, next will be on a whole chicken."
"I haven't made this yet, but it sounds great. I'm wondering if this would be the same with a ham that is not spiral cut, I prefer a ham that isn't spiral cut. Let me know what you think."
"This glaze will be a staple in our home."
"This is a wonderful recipe! I've already used it 1 Easters in a row and the recipients absolutely loved it.This bourbon sauce is great for ther meats as well. Absolutely delicous~~"
"It was really good but it wasn't very pretty with the dark glaze. Everyone said they liked it though."
"Freaking incredible!The one thing I've done to make it better is used a turkey baster w/syringe tip to "inject" glaze between the spiral slices during the 2-3 bastings I do."
"This was really good but too much work for a glaze. I used dark rum since I had no bourbon on hand and it worked great."
"I forgot to mention in my review below that I used a Ready to Cook ham instead of a fully-cooked spiral ham. I cooked it a couple of hours and then glazed it. Next time I will cut back on the baking time, but it was really moist and tender anyway. Fabulous!"
"This recipe is defintely a keeper! I made it a couple of nights ago, and my husband and I both loved it. I used home-made sorghum molasses which is very sweet, so I cut back to 1/4 cup. I also used 3/4 cup honey instead of the full cup. It still made a lot of glaze and was plenty sweet. Kudos!"
"Used this recipe for my Easter ham and it got rave reviews. Only thing to change is to cook it for only 1 1/2 hours and I did it covered with foil to retain moisture. The glaze was yummy and easy!"
