My husband and mother-in-law both said this was the best ham they'd ever tasted. The jar of preserves I bought was 17.5 oz, so I did 1.5 times everything (except the spices--doubled those). Fo...

I made this for a progressive dinner. It was a hit!! My husband does not like cherries, but ate it unknowingly. Later he admitted it was the best ham he ever had and requested it for Christma...

This recipe is one of my family's favorites. It started as my Gram's and was passed down to her seven children, and now I'm cooking the same cherry-glazed ham for my roommates in college. Colle...

A definite keeper! I once bought a ham w/ a packet of cherry glaze,; while it was very good, it wasn't nearly as good as this glaze. I think it's the actual cherries that make the difference Thi...

Made a ham shank with this glaze and it was FANTASTIC. Everyone raved about it and the leftovers flew out of the fridge. I cooked the ham, cooled it, sliced it, and put it in the crock pot wit...

My family and I were tired of the same old ham. I found this website with the 'Cherry Ham Glaze" and it was a big hit. I did not add all the ham drippings to the left over sauce because we lik...
