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)
Honey
Corn syrup (if you have enough honey you could skip this)
Brown sugar
1/2 stick of butter
nutmeg

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.
