How to Cook a Rosemary Bourbon Glazed Ham…
Skip the sugary packaged ham glaze and make something extraordinary from scratch. This glaze takes 10 minutes (tops!) to throw together. Filled with rich bourbon notes, fresh citrus juice, zest, and rosemary to compliment the sweetness. The trick to a great ham is not to overcook it, because it’s already cooked! Tent lightly with foil and bake for just about two hours for juicy, glazed spiralized holiday ham.
Get Ahead: You can prep this glaze a couple of days ahead and refrigerate until glazing your ham the day of cooking. Serve with roasted maple bacon brussel sprouts and carmelized shallot scalloped potatoes for a rich holiday meal.
