Baked ham is an Easter tradition at our house. The glaze features my dried homegrown basil. My husband absolutely loves ham, so I get a large one to be sure we have leftovers. —Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin

"I spent the last two days looking for a glaze for my Easter ham. I selected this one, and I don't regret it. I really liked the basil with the cloves. I didn't have the orange peel but followed everything else. My husband and two boys all liked it."

"The glaze is wonderful. However, next time I will follow the cooking directions that come with the ham because it was a little undercooked following the directions. But I will definately use the glaze again. It has a touch of flavor without overpowering the ham. Delicious!!"

"This is actually the 2nd time I have used this recipe. The 1st time, at Easter, my family loved it--even my children. In fact, they asked for it again at New Years."
