packed brown sugar
gold rum (such as Bacardi Gold®)
salt and pepper to taste
I've tried quite a few glazes but this one really is a hit! Who knew that some rum, sweet stuff and mustardy zing would produce such an outstanding ham. A must try.
The molassas completely overpowered the glaze and basically ruined it. I would NOT recommend this glaze at all!
My family and I love this glaze. The flavor is more mildly sweet than a lot of other recipes, and the mustard and cider balance it out really well.
Someone said that the molasses was overpowering, if you make sure to simmer at least 8-10 minutes it sort of mellows it out, and helps make sure the flavors all combine well.
I made this for dinner last night for our Easter ham. It was delicious and every one loved it. I made it exactly as the recipe said.
That was my first attempt at baking a ham and it was so deliceous I am going to send the recipe to friends for the holidays. I was short on time, so I cut the 5lb bone in ham in half (as best I could) and layed each half down in the baking dish with the fatty layer on top, cutting criss-crosses in the top layer. I cooked it for a little over two hours and it was so good I can't wait to share it with guests next time.
Made it just the way the recipe prescribed and it was wonderful! Gave the ham a delicious flavor and beautiful color. Thanks for sharing!
I used this recipe to make the glaze for my Easter Ham and it was outstanding! I did not have any spicy mustard so I just mixed together a little regular, yellow mustard with a smidgen of cayenne pepper. I substituted red wine vinegar for the cider vinegar as that's all I had in my pantry and that worked out just fine. I was also able to cut the recipe in half since I was only making a small ham. It did require a lot of stirring to get rid of the clumps of mustard and brown sugar that formed but other than that it was quite simple and easy. The glaze had an apple-like flavor and was somewhat smokey with just a little bit of spiciness. It was very tasty indeed! I was able to take the glaze that pooled up around the bottom of the ham in the roasting pan, pour it into a small dish and use it a as nice sauce to dip the pieces of ham on my fork in. It complemented the ham beautifully! Delicious! A very good recipe. I highly recommend it.
