    Thanks for the awesome recipe! It was worth hauling out the blender. I like spicy foods so I left in the pepper seeds and consider the heat perfect! My only change was that my ham wasn't smoked so I followed the ham package instructions (325 F, covered, with some water in the dish) for half the time, then pulled off the foil and basted the ham every twenty minutes until done. Beautiful!

    I followed this recipe with 2 exceptions: I didn't add salt, since ham is already salty, and I added a tsp of cinnamon. Perfection! My 20 guests were sopping up the excess glaze with their bread! Thank you Rita!

    This is the most wonderful recipe EVER!! This glaze would taste great on a i did double the recipe and used a total of 2 chipotle's didn't double the spices and it was perfection.. the DH could not stop picking little pieces off the ham every time he walked by.<br/>I think this glaze would be great on chicken, pork.. but i think im going to try it on some baby back ribs.. just the right spice and sticky"ness" will be making this often!

    Wow, oh wow this is a true 5 star recipe. I've had it saved for some time and finally got around to trying it. I did not buy a smoked ham so the ham I did buy was not full cooked. I cooked it one hour @ 325, then I poured the glaze over it and cooked on 300 for about two more hours. I had poured off the juice of the pineapple but next time I will save to add to the sauce as it cooks. The sauce got too thick and started to stick to the pan, so I added a very small amount of water a few times as I basted. Also I cut the chipotle peppers back to one and it was just the right heat.The ham was so delicous, I will keep this around for a long time.

    LOOK NO FURTHER! The ham glaze search stops here. I could drink this -- it's that good! I just happened to have a whole nutmeg and it made such a difference (I'm sure pre-grated would be fine, though). It didn't take much to give it a fabulous flavor and I saved a little to dip my ham. Love the little kick the chilis gave it. You are a GENIUS!!
