Another recipe sent to me by my aunt. From Party Time Ideas from Safeway, I believe the date was December of 1959. Enjoy!

This glaze is my new all time favorite. I put the cloves in before the brown shugar mixture though because I thought it would be easier. After putting the mixture on I was glad I did it that way.
