Honey Apple Ham Glaze

I had two huge hams in my freezer from my nephew’s 4-H project. I decided Thanksgiving Day was a great time to try out baking one of them. Just as I was about to put it in the oven, I decided it needed a honey glaze so I make this one up on the spot!

I used:

Apple juice (I think Apple Cider would be great, but we had just drank all of ours)
Corn syrup (if you have enough honey you could skip this)
Brown sugar
1/2 stick of butter

I’d like to be able to tell you the exact measurements I used, but I can’t. I melted the butter in the measuring cup and then just started adding in the other ingredients. I think I used about 1/2 cup of apple juice, 1/3-1/2 cup honey, a big squirt of corn syrup, several big spoons of brown sugar, a shake of nutmeg. I also stuck a few cloves in the ham just because I had some.

You can see I ended up with about 1 1/2 cups of glaze. I don’t think you could really mess this up. Use the sweet, fruity ingredients you have in your kitchen. There was plenty of liquid after the ham cooked. I covered the ham tightly with foil to bake it. It tasted delish!

As I’m typing this, I’m thinking it would be great poured over the top of cut-up sweet potatoes and baked. Yum!

  7. The ham looks yummy! Isn’t it hard to write down a recipe when it’s all in your head, and you usually don’t measure. A bad hair cut is one thing, but when you do it to yourself, is another. Thanks about the migraines.
