Sugar Free Maple-Bourbon Glaze


  • 1 Half Spiral-Cut Ham - Pre-Cooked


Sugar Free Maple-Bourbon Glaze

  • In a small saucepan over low heat, stir together water and Bocha Sweet until granules are completely dissolved.
  • Remove pan from heat and whisk in the remaining ingredients.
  • Be careful adding the xanthan gum because it tends to clump. You may need to use a blender or an immersion blender to completely mix in the xanthan gum! It can be tricky.


  • If frozen, allow the ham to completely thaw in the refrigerator. This may take up to 72 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Wrap a baking pan completely in foil.
  • Lay out additional foil on top of pan - enough to cover the ham.
  • Lay ham on foil flat side down and bring the foil up around the ham, covering it.
  • Make a small opening in the foil big enough to allow your meat thermometer to be inserted without making contact with the foil.
  • Insert the meat thermometer making sure not to insert it into the bone.
  • Place ham in oven. If your thermometer connects to your oven internally, make the connection at this time. If not, place the ham in a way that allows you to easily check the temperature by looking through the glass.
  • Bake at 350F until ham reaches 105F.
  • Remove ham from oven, remove foil and baste with up to half of Bourbon Glaze.
  • Place ham (uncovered) back in oven and bake to 140F.
  • Remove ham from oven and baste with the remainder of Bourbon Glaze.
  • Serve and enjoy!
