I served this for Easter and everyone raved--said they'd never had such a delicious ham. The kids loved it. The chutney was very good and the glaze was exceptional. I made the chutney and spread it in the bottom of the roasting pan, then added a deboned ham topped with the glaze. Thanks, Dorothy!
I just fixed this for Easter Dinner and our son who really didn't like Ham loved this. It was a refreshing change from the everyday ham with pineapples. It's a keeper recipe! The glaze was great but I couldn't find all the ingredients needed so I had to fudge it a bit.
