Directions Step-By-Step

1
I had to list something on the ingredient list to be able to post so I just listed all the ingredients and for each different glaze I put measurements but most are to taste.
2
Honey and Cherry Glaze.
Chop fresh or canned cherries; mix with honey. Baste ham with it several times during time ham is baking.
3
Cider Glaze.
Coat ham with brown sugar and baste with sweet cider.
4
Mustard Glaze.
Coat ham with thin layer of prepared mustard; sprinkle generously with brown sugar. Or I like to mix sugar and mustard and spread all over ham. I also add either crushed cloves or stick cloves in surface of ham.
5
Pineapple Glaze.
Mix 1 cup crushed pineapple (drained) and 1 cup brown sugar. Spread over ham. Baste ham often during time of baking with the Pineapple juice.
6
Brown sugar syrup Glaze.
Boil 1 cup brown sugar with 1/2 cup water for 5 minutes. Baste ham several times while ham is baking with this syrup.
7
Maple syrup Glaze.
Use plain pure maple syrup to baste ham while baking. (not too often).
8
Jelly Glaze.
1 cup of any tart jelly melted and cooked with 1 tablespoon cornstarch until clear makes a delicious basting coating.
9
Orange Glaze.
Use the juice and grated peel of 1 orange with 1 cup brown sugar or orange marmalade; garnish with orange slices.
