Pam's Awesome Apricot Rum Glaze for Ham

I am always ready to try something new, so I developed this glaze for our Christmas ham this year. It packs a punch of flavor and would make a fine condiment for those left over Ham sliders. Yum

Prep:

15 Min

Method:

Blend

Ingredients

15 oz
apricot preserves (for alternative, see note below)
1/2 to 3/4 c
dark rum (i like myers)
2-3 Tbsp
coarse ground dijon mustard (grey poupon with whole mustard seeds)
a few grinds of black pepper
2 tsp
soy sauce, dark
1 to 2 Tbsp
vegetable oil (something with no dominant taste)
2 tsp
lemon juice, fresh (optional)
1/8 tsp
salt (optonal)

NOTE: IF YOU CAN'T FIND GOOD APRICOT PRESERVE WITH PIECES OF APRICOT IN IT, USE APRICOT JAM AND COOK/SOFTEN ABOUT 8-10 DRIED APRICOTS IN WATER TO COVER AND THEN WHIZ WITH A STICK BLENDER OR CHOP FINE.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place all ingredients into a deep bowl or large measuring cup and blend with a stick blender. Adjust to taste and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
2
When ready to use, heat slightly to make glaze pourable for ease of coverage of the ham during the last 30-45 minutes of heating. Brush or pour glaze over ham 2-3 times to develop a nice crusty exterior. Save some to pass at the table for guests who want more sauce.
