TA DA!! Between the deep, smoky, sweet flavors from the bourbon to the fragrance of the warm spices caramelizing on the ham; it’s hard not to pick pieces off of this Southern Honey Bourbon Glazed Ham before it’s ready to hit the table.
Do you love the “Ta Da” moment when you get to bring out the beautiful, long awaited centerpiece for the holiday dinner? I know I do. You want it to be picture perfect!
A lot of preparation and planning goes into making it a special day. Well, I don’t have to cook this year, but how could we not have all the yummy leftovers if we don’t have our own ham? That’s not happening!
So we decided to make our own big fat ham anyway. I have said it before, and I will say it yet again, I can’t pass up a good sale. Haven’t seen prices this good in ages. A bone-in half ham for 79 cents a pound, that is a deal that is too good to pass up. Think you can’t get a good ham that cheap, well think again. I’m loving using the Flip app, you can check all your local sale ads and just search for what you need, pretty handy.
So I thought this was a good time to try something different, because for special holidays I always make this pretty Holiday Glazed Ham, which we love.
Since we were in the mood to try something we’ve never had before, we decided to see what a Southern Honey Bourbon Glazed Ham would taste like. The barrel aged bourbon brings a deep, smoky, sweet flavor. Then there is the fragrance of the warm spices all caramelizing on the ham. It took all I had in order to not start picking pieces off when it came to basting this ham, really hard because it smells so good.
But when you finally get to taste it, well it is well worth the wait and you’ll want to go for the biggest ham. Also, having a nice size roasting pan and adjustable roasting rack will make your life so much easier, it’s well worth it for transferring your roast, ham or turkey from the pan to the table for your holiday meals.
