Because of its simple ingredient list, easy preparation and unbeatable flavor, this baked ham is one you'll come to rely on often. The honey-bourbon glaze not only looks lovely, but also helps to seal in the meat's juices. —Jean Adams, Waycross, Georgia

  • 1 bone-in fully cooked spiral-sliced ham (7 to 9 pounds)
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup bourbon
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard


  1. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Score the surface of the ham, making diamond shapes 1/2 in. deep. Bake at 325° for 2 hours.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the remaining ingredients; cook and stir until smooth.
  3. Brush ham with some of the glaze; bake 20-25 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 140°, brushing occasionally with remaining glaze.
