Whenever I make this dish for friends and family, I'm reminded of the wonderful scent of the Maine orchards where we picked our own apples every fall until we moved to Missouri last year.

Festive Ham Glaze

Festive Ham Glaze

As long as I can remember, my favorite room's been the kitchen. My glaze dates back to shortly after my husband (of 23 years now) and I were married. My parents were visiting, I cooked a Sunday ham with this glaze—and I've done it that same way from then on. Since my husband made his career in the Air Force, we spent years in the city or living in close quarters. When he retired, we decided to plant roots here where we could experience the daily wonder of God's creation. (The rise and set of the sun, silhouetting the mountains in the distance, is breathtaking.) Our children are 17 and 11.

We live in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains and pork is a favorite here. I particularly like this recipe because it's prepared the day ahead and only needs to be reheated the next day.
