Holiday Ham with Apricot Glaze


1 (7- to 8-lb.) fully cooked, bone-in spiral-cut ham half
Vegetable cooking spray
1 (18-oz.) jar apricot preserves
1/2 cup bourbon
1/2 cup whole grain mustard
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar


1. Preheat oven to 325°. Place ham, cut side down, on a lightly greased (with cooking spray) rack in a heavy-duty aluminum foil-lined broiler pan; let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.
2. Stir together preserves and next 3 ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally, 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and reserve 1 1/2 cups. Brush remaining glaze over ham.
3. Bake at 325°, uncovered, on lowest oven rack 2 hours or until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest portion registers 140°, basting every 30 minutes with reserved 1 1/2 cups glaze. Let stand 15 minutes before serving. Carve your favorite sized portion and enjoy!
