Yum! I decided to have an experiment with this using a tiny 600g ham because apart from Christmas the larger ones are way more than the two of us would get through.It came out great cooked all as directed apart from I used around a third of everything and forgot to buy cherries so ommitted those. Apart from the glaze I loved the spice blend with the apricots that complemented the ham well. I saved some of the sryup leftover from the apricots and lightly spooned over the ham which is a worthwhile step to make sure the wonderful flavours don't go to waste.
