Cherry Almond Ham Glaze Recipe

Cherry Almond Ham Glaze Recipe

I came across this recipe looking for an alternative to traditional sauces for holiday meats. Mostly, I serve it with holiday ham, and it goes over well—probably because it is such a change of taste. But the glaze should be fine with almost any meat...and its cheesy color would add a festive touch to the table! Our life's busy. In addition to being a farm records analyst, my husband's a minister. I work out of our home—our girls are 4 and 1—as a hairstylist and Edd's secretary, and teach a morning each week at a Christian preschool.

"I don't usually actually glaze the ham with this; I just make it to serve along side the ham, so that people who don't like anything on their ham can be happy, too. This is so pretty, tasty, and smells heavenly when you're preparing it! This recipe was a contest winner in Country Woman which caused me to be invited to be one of the original 1,000 Taste of Home Field Editors. :)"
