    pam of's Note:

    This is a different variation to the classic glaze recipe for fully cooked spiral sliced ham and turkey breast because it uses mustard to help the mixture adhere to the meat as well as to add a savory flavor.

    1. 1
      Blend and spread on the ham. Put the coated ham on a plate or lazy susan so you can spin it. Use a mini torch with lowest flame to caramelize the mixture. Wave it quickly so the mixture bubbles but does not burn. May take about 10 minutes if you are being slow and careful.
    2. 2
      There are two main options for glazing without a torch. The first is with the broiler and the second is with the stove top. The broiler method involves putting your oven on the broiler option WITH THE DOORS OPEN while you are taking the time to roll the ham or turkey breast in the sugar-mixture. It is important that you aren’t heating the oven up because you don’t want to cook the meat more – just caramelize the sugar. (best to make sure the rack is in place before turning on broiler). Once the coils are red hot, place the meat in the oven under that area where the coil goes back around and place it as close to the coils as possible without actually touching. Do not step away from the oven. Once you see the sugar bubbling, remove it. If you wait any longer it will start to burn.
    3. 3
      The stove top method is to carefully cook the sugar mixture in a pan and then pour a thin layer over the ham or turkey breast. To caramelize the sugar mixture, place the sugar mixture in a heavy skillet or saucepan. Heat and stir over low heat until the sugar melts and turns a golden brown. This one generally ends up with the thickest “crust” but is preferred by those who are afraid of experimenting directly on the ham or turkey. (if they wreck the sugar mixture, they throw it out and start over but it never touched the meat.).
