Baked Ham Glazed with Champagne
We use the term “Champagne” loosely: Feel free to use a less expensive bubbly such as prosecco, cava, or crémant. The sparkling wine lends a little razzle-dazzle to the retro-chic combo of ham and pineapple. If you’re using maple syrup, try Grade B—it has more intense maple flavor than Grade A.
Baked Ham with Rosemary and Sweet Vermouth
This succulent ham takes cues from the Mediterranean with piney rosemary and sweet, herbal vermouth.

Honey-Baked Pork Roast
Although not a traditional ham, you can still enjoy your holiday meal of pork with our Honey-Baked Pork Roast. The meat slowly roasts so that the sugar-honey spice rub bakes into a shellac-like crust. The roast slices like ham, with firm but juicy slices that go perfectly with a simple honey-mustard sauce.
Bourbon and Orange-Glazed Ham
Rich bourbon and bright citrus dress up this centerpiece-worthy ham. Opt for a less-sodium smoked ham to keep things light and healthy.
