Baked Ham with Red Wine
¼ cup of brown sugar
Clove garlic (minced)
Baked ham (6 lbs)
½ cup of pineapple juice
½ cup of honey
1/3 cup of red wine
Begin by marinating the ham. Get a plastic bag or bowl. Combine the honey, sugar and red wine. Add in the pineapple juice and garlic. Put the ham in this mixture. To get the most out of this tasty baked ham recipe, put the marinade and ham in the fridge.
Keep it there for at least six hours. You can also leave it there overnight. It’s a good idea to turn the ham around every couple of hours.
Preheat the oven (350 degrees). Set the ham on the rack and onto the roasting pan. Insert a meat thermometer into the meat (don’t let it touch the bone). Let it bake until the temp gets up to 140 degrees. Use the marinade for basting. Apply it every few minutes.
Baked Ham with Honey and Bourbon
Baked ham (6 lbs)
1/2 cup of honey
½ cup of molasses
1/3 cup of bourbon
1/3 cup of orange
2 tbsp of mustard
Start this simple baked ham recipe by combining the honey with the molasses. Use a pan or microwave to heat up this mix. When the mix is ready, add in the bourbon, mustard and orange juice.

Bake it at 325 degrees until the temp goes up to 140. This will take about 90 minutes. It depends on how much ham you’re baking. As you cook, add the mixture you made. You can baste every 10 to 15 minutes. Pour some of the drippings in a pan. Add some honey to this and let it boil. Use this mixture as glaze when the ham is cooked.
