Baked Spiral Ham with Apple-Bourbon Glaze

This spiral ham is perfect for all your holiday get togethers! 


  • 1 8-lb (4 kg) fully cooked spiral ham
  • ½ cup (125 mL) water
  • 1 can (12 oz/350 g) frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed
  • ¾ cup (175 mL) brown sugar
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) plus 1-2 tbsp (15-30 mL) whiskey
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ tsp (2 mL) coarsely ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 275ºF (135ºC). Place the ham cut-side down in the 14 x 10 (35-cm x 25-cm) Enameled Cast Iron Pan. Pour water in the pan, cover with foil, and place in the oven.
  2. Meanwhile, combine all the glaze ingredients in a 2-qt. (1.9-L) Brilliance Nonstick Sauce Pan. Whisk until smooth with the Sauce Whisk and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.  
  3. Lower the heat to medium and reduce for 25–30 minutes, until the liquid becomes a thick, syrupy consistency. Set aside to cool for about 35–40 minutes.
  4. Brush the glaze onto the ham with the Chef’s Silicone Basting Brush. Bake an additional 5–10 minutes. Add the remaining 1–2 tbsp whiskey to the remaining glaze; whisk and serve as a sauce with the ham.
