  • 1 Cup cherry preserves
  • 1/2 Cup bourbon
  • 1/4 Cup molasses
  • 1/2 Teaspoon McCormick® Allspice, Ground
  • 1 bone-in spiral-cut ham, about 10 pounds


Preheat oven to 325°F.

Cook cherry preserves, bourbon, molasses and allspice in medium saucepan on medium-low heat 15 minutes or until slightly reduced, stirring occasionally.

Place the ham on its side in roasting pan.

Brush 1/2 of the preserves mixture over ham, gently separating the slices so mixture can reach middle of ham.

Cover loosely with foil.

Bake 1 hour, basting occasionally with pan drippings.

Remove foil.

Brush with remaining preserves mixture.

Bake 45 minutes longer.

Serve ham with pan drippings.
