Questions & Replies

  1. What kind of vinegar and mustard do I use in this recipe?
  2. How long do you cook the ham and what temp though?


  1. Quick and delicious... everyone wanted to dip their ham pieces into the pan. I did wish it was thicker like another reviewer... I guess no matter how thick it is, it will all drip down into the pan while baking. Next time I will baste the glaze over the ham 2 or three times during baking. I will definitely make it again!<br/><br/>Thanks!
  2. Really good. Wish it were thicker, so next time will add corn starch or more flour, but just a touch.
  3. wow! this is the best glaze for ham Ihave tried. I was looking for something close to the glaze that is used on the honey baked ham company's ham. this is it! I did tweak a bit but not far from the receipe. try adding 1/2 tablespoon honey, the added sheen to the finished product is amazing. thank you
  4. This was the best glaze i have done on Ham, It was so delicious,
  5. This is my first review of a recipe. I always read and appreciate people being honest. <br/>This recipe was GREAT! I did not use the sherry. I had an 18 lb whole ham so used 1.5 times the recipe just as listed. I got great compliments from everyone. This WILL be the glaze I use in the future. (Note: I used a very inexpensive ham on sale ... but it was GREAT with this glaze.)


  1. I used Chinese Five-Spice instead of Cinnamon. Yum! Also, for a low-carb glaze, Substitute brown sugar with Sukrin Gold. I also added some Fiber Syrup for a sticky sweet glaze.
