Bourbon-Glazed Ham


This is a delicious combo of about five recipes I found while researching for my first Thanksgiving ham. The empty baking pan afterwards was my best compliment!

  • 1 (5 pound) boneless ham

  • cup bourbon whiskey

  • ½ cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice

  • ½ cup honey

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 ½ cups water

  • 1 (8 ounce) can pineapple rings


  1. Score the surface of the ham, making diamond shapes about 1/2-inch deep. Place the ham in a large, resealable bag. Add the bourbon, brown sugar, crushed pineapple, honey, and garlic to the bag; refrigerate at least 8 hours, turning the bag over several times while marinating.

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  3. Transfer the ham and marinade to a large baking dish; pour the water into the dish. Attach the pineapple rings around the surface of the ham with toothpicks.

  4. Bake in preheated oven until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F (95 degrees C), basting occasionally with the sauce in the pan, 90 to 105 minutes.
