Cherry Bourbon Glazed Ham

Elevate the baked ham with a festive glaze of cherry preserves, bourbon, molasses and allspice. Serve at Easter or Christmas dinner, open house buffet or brunchtime entertaining.


        • 1 cup cherry preserves
        • 1/2 cup bourbon
        • 1/4 cup molasses
        • 1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Allspice, Ground
        • bone-in spiral-cut ham, about 10 pounds


Preheat oven to 325°F. Cook cherry preserves, bourbon, molasses and allspice in medium saucepan on medium-low heat 15 minutes or until slightly reduced, stirring occasionally.

Place the ham on its side in roasting pan. Brush 1/2 of the preserves mixture over ham, gently separating the slices so mixture can reach middle of ham. Cover loosely with foil.

Bake 1 hour, basting occasionally with pan drippings. Remove foil. Brush with remaining preserves mixture. Bake 45 minutes longer. Serve ham with pan drippings.
