Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

"I came up with the glaze for this ham using ingredients on hand and it's the best I've ever tasted. If you have any glaze left over, you can add it to the pan drippings with a little flour or cornstarch and make a nice sauce to accompany the meat. Use the bone and ham trimmings to make soup afterwards."

I didn't care too much for this. The orange flavor was too overpowering and I didn't even use the full amount! If I were to make it again, I'd probably just leave out the zest and only use the o...

Excellent! My only variation of the recipe was that I spiked the ham with whole cloves and so I left out the ground cloves. From now on I will always use this recipe for my holiday hams.

Excellent recipe Elisa! Like others suggested, I doubled the glaze, but kept the cloves at a minimum. I had no trouble with the glaze burning on the bottom of the pan, but maybe that was because...
