"dlboylan, yes I've poured it over a spiral sliced ham in a crockpot, and it turns out amazing!"
"Will this work for sliced ham in a crock pot. Maybe pour the mixture over the ham? It sounds delicious!"
"Best ham glaze i've tried!"
"This was wonderful! Loved the cranberry flavor baked into the ham."
"First, my husband hates cranberries, but when I had this glaze on the ham, he said throw every other recipe away, this is excellent. I did not use the mustard, because I did not have any. It is very, very good."
"I have used this recipe for many years. My family loves the flavor plus it is very attractive because of the festive red color it turns. If there are any leftovers it makes great ham biscuits for breakfast or snack later."
"Wonderful, and it looked so pretty on my holiday table."
"We loved this glaze! It is not overly sweet. It enhances the flavor of the smoked ham. Has anyone tried it on turkey?"
"This is still the way I fix my ham, very good and everyone likes it..."
