Looking to receive some WOWs at your upcoming holiday party? Glaze your prized ham with this boozy maple glaze and receive rave reviews from your guests.
Makes enough glaze for 1 ham
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup (no substitutions)
- ½ cup orange marmalade
- ¼ cup bourbon + 2 tablespoons bourbon
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- ½ teaspoon ground pepper
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan EXCEPT 2 tablespoons bourbon. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture is thick, syrupy, and reduced to one cup. Should take about 5-10 minutes. Set aside.
When ham has about 10 minutes of cooking time remaining, add final 2 tablespoons of bourbon. Brush ham with 1/3rd of glaze. Return to over for final 10 minutes. Remove ham from oven, brush entire ham with another 1/3rd of glaze. Cover ham loosely with foil and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
Warm remaining glaze with 1/3rd cup of ham juices. Carve and serve ham, passing the sauce/glaze around the table. Enjoy!
