The use of brown sugar is nothing new when it comes to baking a ham. However, when you add some bourbon and a little cola to the mix, you get a nice new twist.  Those are not the only surprises in this Brown Sugar-Bourbon Baked Ham recipe. The smell of the 48 cloves will bring your guests straight to your dinner table.

Top your ham with a new flavor glaze to add a bit of twist to your classic dish. Try this blood orange glaze for something new.  Not only will the taste of the brown sugar and the blood oranges bring you family back for more, the ham will look spectacular as the centerpiece of your holiday table.

Add a little mojo to your ham with this mojo sauce and papaya salsa recipe. Both the sauce and salsa could be made ahead of time making preparation for this recipe easy.  Serving the ham with the fresh fruit will give your ham a brand new look.

Are you ready to fire up the grill?  Consider cooking your ham outside this year. Over indirect heat, the ham will cook evenly and will be delicious. It will take about 15 to 18 minutes per pound for the ham to cook.  To get started, consider this recipe for a spiced grilled ham topped with a citrus glaze.
