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!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

I loved this recipe. I made it for Easter dinner. I made some changes. I omitted the water. After i marinated the ham, I poured the marinade into a sauce pan, let it reduce for ten mintues, and then poured it over the ham before I put it in the oven. Fantastic. Very juicy and very flavorful. Read More

You REALLY have to like bourbon to like this recipe. Apparently I'm not a fan of bourbon. I cooked it according to instructions and it came out mushy maybe it was the marinating for 8 hours I don't usually marinate just pour the glaze on and bake. There was no saving this recipe the marinade penetrated too deep. Read More

Made this for Christmas dinner, and it was so goooood. The only thing I did different was to add a single serving bottle of cola to the marinade, and omitted the water from the pan since I had the liquid from the cola. This was a real hit, and we'll be having this again, no doubt about it. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This was awesome! I did change the recipe a bit - I doubled the glaze (without the water) and poured it over a sliced 4-pound boneless ham then cooked it in the crock pot on low for about 5-6 hours. It made a simple delicious Easter ham - excellent flavor. Read More

Amazing! I will definitely make this again. The only thing I did differently was replace half of the water with apple juice. Great job Jennifer! Read More
