This is an old recipe from years ago. It is a very tasty glaze,& you can tell from the picture that it was made YEARS AGO. I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED COOKING TO PLEASE FAMILY & FRIENDS, & IN LOOKING AT some of my old pictures, I came across this one, you may enjoy. Use it on Chicken or Pork Chops or what ever, even Meat Loaf. It is simple & easy. Give it a try. Double Recipe if you have a large ham. Back in the day, I only concentrated on taking a picture of the finished product, not step by step like I do today. This is simple & so easy. I used Kale & Grapes frosted with sugar as a garnish.
