"Bowl Full of Cherry" Ham Glaze


"My family doesn't like turkey, so I was trying to come up with a new way to glaze ham other than the old brown sugar or pineapple glaze. Pieced together a few recipes, did some experimenting, and came out with this. Very tasty!"

I made this and everyone loved it. I would recommend it more for the fall or winter. It just has that type of flavor to it.

Oh this is a wonderful glaze my family loved it and now it's been added to our list for large parties and gathering as we usually get a very large ham thank you for sharing we love it

Easy and quick and it was very well received by all that had it. Thanks for the post. Also, tried this as a topping for vanilla ice cream. Trust me on this one, it was well received as well.

Made it exactly as the recipe says. Everyone said it was different than anything they had ever tasted AND everyone absolutely LOVED it!!!! I don't think I'll ever use a different glaze recipe ag...

Used this on a ham yesterday in a pre-Christmas trial. It sure turned out well! Both husband and adult son commented on how good it was. I did add a little cinnamon and clove. Thanks!!
