Grabbed this recipe at the last minute before putting my ham in and it was delicious! If you don't like cloves to permeate the ham, this is the recipe for you! I didn't use the water in this as I had only half a ham and also this sounded thinner than I thought it needed to be. I crossed hatched the ham about 20 minutes before done and poured more glaze over the top and stuffed in some marachino cheeries. It was so beautiful and I had none left!
I used a half boneless ham (Kentucky Legend) so I scaled the recipe to 6 servings. This gave the ham a delicious flavor. Not overly anything, just good! After I sliced some of the ham down, I laid it in the juices and it was just perfect. Thanks Inez, for another winner! P.S. I followed the recipe exact, I figured it was supposed to be on the thin side. It did not sound like a glaze to me, but more like a basting sauce...I did baste with it frequently during baking.
WOW, WOW, WOW, This was the best and by far the most moist ham I have ever made. My kids ate it like a bunch of wild hogs that haven't eaten in a week. ( They ddin't even save me the bone for broth )
