This recipe goes back quite a few years ago, when I was merely just taking pictures of the finished product. In going through some of my vintage pictures, I realized I had not shared this & a few other recipes with you. With the holidays fast approaching, you may want to give this simple & easy Ham Glaze Recipe a try. It is a very tasty recipe & so simple to make. If you are serving an extra large ham you may want to double this recipe, or if you want an extra serving of glaze on the side. Heat on stove top if desired over low heat. I have also added a bit of ground cloves to this recipe.

How To Make brown sugar ham glaze

    About 1/2 hour prior to ham baking add the brown sugar glaze mixture over ham, and repeat at least 2 to 3 times or as desired. Allow ham to rest and cool slightly prior to carving if not already sliced.
