Bourbon, Pineapple and Orange Glazed Holiday Ham

READY IN: 3hrs 25mins
Recipe by BecR2400

One of my family's favorite holiday ham recipes --perfect for Easter or New Year's celebrations. The glaze is really wonderful-- half gets brushed onto the ham and baked, the remainder gets passed at the table. Enjoy!

Really tasty! I actually didn't have enough marmalade, but the glaze was terrific and I got rave reviews form family and friends. Thanks

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. Using a sharp knife, score the ham into a diamond pattern about 1/4-inch deep and 1-inch apart.
  3. Stud the ham with whole cloves in the center of each diamond.
  4. Place ham fat side up in a shallow roasting pan (for easy clean-up line pan with aluminum foil, or use a heavy-duty disposable aluminum pan).
  5. Bake ham for 2 1/2 hours.
  6. Meanwhile, stir together the brown sugar, bourbon, orange marmalade, crushed pineapple, and prepared mustard. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring until sugar has dissolved.
  7. Remove ham from the oven.
  8. Spoon half of the glaze/sauce over the ham.
  9. Decorate ham with pineapple rings, using a few toothpicks to hold ring in place. Place a cherry in the center of each ring, and attach it with a toothpick.
  10. Return ham to the oven and bake for another 20 to 30 minutes.
  11. Transfer ham to a platter and allow to rest for 10 minutes before carving (be sure to remove all toothpicks).
  12. Pass the remaining sauce at the table.
