I have to be honest.  I am not the biggest fan of turkey.  I am one of those people who, at Thanksgiving and Christmas, much prefers ham to the bird.  So, I am always on the lookout for a really fun and festive ham recipe.

Well, my friend Brooklyn Maple, with Kentucky Legend, just served one up.  Here's a great "glaze" recipe that will certainly add some extra spice and kick to your Christmas ham.  You can surprise the family this year by slicing a Hot Honey Garlic Glazed Ham.  That sounds really good, doesn't it?

Here's how to make it!

Hot Honey Garlic Glazed Ham

2 tbsp honey

1/4 cup melted butter

1/4 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce

2 tbsp white vinegar

1 1/2 tbsp minced garlic

2 tbsp vegetable oil

4 to 6 lb Kentucky Legend Half Ham Honey

2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley


1. Preheat your oven to 375˚F. In a small bowl, whisk together honey, butter, hot sauce, vinegar, garlic and 2 tbsp water. Set aside.

2. Using a sharp knife, score a 1-inch wide diamond pattern on ham. **This will let that glaze really soak down into that ham!

3. Heat oil in large skillet; sear ham on each side for about 15 minutes or until browned and golden. Transfer to cutting board; cover with foil.

4. Transfer covered ham to rack set in roasting pan. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes or until heated through and instant-read thermometer inserted in center reaches 140˚F.

5. Remove from oven; remove foil. Baste ham with glaze; bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until glaze is slightly caramelized.

6. Transfer to cutting board; let stand for 15 minutes before slicing. Garnish with parsley.
