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.

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!
