I usually make this on New Year's Day and also at Easter. It goes a long way. Of course it is good anytime you have a lot of people to serve. Delicious Glaze.

This was a great recipe! I used a Hatfield Boneless Family Ham and the glaze was so quick and delicious. This will be my go to glaze. Thanks, Bert!!
I had to make a couple of substitutions in this recipe, and was hesitant about rating it. However, it was so good, that I decided to rate it with my changes. Since I decided to make this on the spur of the moment and I had no apricot jam, I used orange marmalade. I also had to substitute turbinado sugar for the brown sugar that I was out of also. Remaining glaze ingredients were as listed and I brushed this on a bone in shank portion ham that I had bought. The glaze was delicious with just a hint of sweetness. When I cook a ham again, I'm going to make sure I have some apricot jam. Can't wait to compare the tastes! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
This is the best ham that I've eaten in a long time. Fabulous flavor combination. Perfect balance of sweet and savory...nothing overpowered anything else. I had a quarter of a fully-cooked ham and I sliced it, put it into a shallow baking dish, spread the glaze on and baked it for 30 minutes. Deeee-licious! Thanx for this recipe; its a keeper. I'll make it again.
