The Happy Husband: Whiskey Molasses Glazed Ham

My husband loves ham. But not just any ham. It has to be this irresistible whiskey molasses glazed ham. I cook it slowly and baste it with a whiskey molasses sauce during the last hour of cooking. Resulting with a super moist and flavorful ham. My husband (and children) are always very happy when I make this for supper. So if you want a happy husband, I would recommend making him this main dish for supper tonight!

Try serving this whiskey molasses glazed ham with candied brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes or my warm potato salad. But you can pair ham with basically any veg and carb. So serve with your family’s favorite sides. And be sure to make this ham for Easter Dinner, Non-Traditional Thanksgiving Dinner, and Christmas Dinner. You may also consider serving it for your average weekday dinner. Your family will thank you for it!

Making a big ham for your family is great because you will have so many leftovers. Which allows you to use the leftovers in creative ways for the rest of the week – making it a very cost effective protein. Try making a healthy bone broth. Creamy ham and vegetable soup is another great option. Ham hash, ham sandwiches, fried ham and eggs. The list goes on. So get creative and share your ideas in the comments below. How do you use up your leftover ham? I would love to see your ideas!

Course Main Course
Servings 8


  • 1 Bone-In Ham (8-10 lbs)
  • 1 can Frozen Concentrated Orange Juice
  • cup Peach or Apricot Jam
  • ½ cup Fancy Molasses
  • 3 Tbsp Canadian Whiskey
  • 4 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • tsp Coarse Ground Pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  • Place the ham in a large roasting pan. Cover with a lid and place in the oven for 2 hours (or until an internal temperature of 130°F is reached).

  • Once the ham has been in the oven for two hours, remove from the oven and brush with ½ of the glaze. Return to the oven without the lid.
  • Cook ham uncovered for another hour (or until an internal temperature of 160°F is reached), brushing with remaining glaze every 15 minutes.
  • Once cooked, transfer the ham onto a cutting board and tent with foil for about 10 minutes.
  • Carve, and serve with the reserved sauce.

“Love suffers long and is kind, love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.”

1 Corinthians 13:4-8a
