This one is for a party. The Latin dessert sauce, dulce de leche, made by boiling milk til it's caramel like, is used here to create a sweet and tangy glaze for your holiday ham. This is a true crowd pleaser. The final sugary and salty flavor, after the long roasting process, is out of this world. Be sure to save the ham bone for soup.
