MY MOM was known as the best cook in the country. This delicious glaze was in her collection of handwritten recipes. I laminated the ones I use most often, and this favorite was included.
It's easy to prepare, and everyone seems to like ham made this way.

Sweet and spicy ingredients combine in a fruity glaze to top this delightful ham, which was one of my mom's specialties. Our family enjoyed it many times for Easter. The horseradish and dry mustard in the glaze add delicious zip to the tender ham slices.

This slow-cooked entree is tender and delicious with regular or turkey ham. "My family loves this dish," writes Julie Williquette of Hartselle, Alabama. "Simmered in pineapple juice, the ham slices are so flavorful."
There's nothing I'd rather serve for Easter dinner or another springtime occasion than succulent baked ham. My recipe features a rub that add flavor to a meat plus a delicious cherry sauce with a hint of almond.
When my husband and I first tasted this delicious ham, we were surprised to learn that the sauce included horseradish. That secret ingredient definitely is the key to its tangy taste. I serve it for Easter and Christmas.
