Don Q Ham Marinade

  • Ham (purchase by pound according to how many it serves)
  • 1 stick Butter
  • cups Don Q Gold rum
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg
  • ½ cup Brown sugar
  • ½ cup White sugar
  • 1 pinch Ground cloves
  1. PROCEDURE: In a medium saucepan, melt the stick of butter with the sugar and spices. Once thoroughly blended, add Don Q Gold Rum and cook on medium for 5 minutes. Inject half of the mixture into the ham. Slowly pour the remaining mixture over the top of the ham. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for 6 hours. For an interesting Creole twist, add coarsely chopped pecans when mixture is simmering with the rum.
