Honey Ham Glaze

Cassie *


This is a delicious glaze for your upcoming Easter ham...depending how many you are serving for Easter, you may want to make 1 1/2 times the recipe, so you have enough to glaze, plus serve with the ham...and it will be used as it's delicious. I also use leftover glaze for glazing smoked pork chops..
