Reviews for Jim's Honey-Glazed Ham
"This did not turn out at all as I expected! The diamond cuts were dry. The glaze was more like caramel then a glaze. Didn't taste like a honey glaze. even my kids said it was dry."
"I loved the flavor of the Honey Glaze. I guess I don't like fully cooked boneless hams. Next time I will use the glaze on a bone-in ham."
"This recipe was the first ham I cooked for company and it was amaaaazing!! Didn't have cloves so I used nutmeg instead, and we used the remaining sauce as a glaze. My boyfriend doesn't normally like ham (too salty he says), but the ingredients perfectly balanced out the salt. Will definitely be my go-to recipe for future."
"Best glaze ever! Not just for ham. Great for smoked pork chops - marinate than grill! Family favorite - my Grandson calls it my 'Secret Sauce'!"
"Super good! I make this for Sunday dinners and holidays. Family loves it."
"This is great in baking pork steaks or chops."
"Awsome, My family loves it. I also will add pineapple next time."
"We loved this!! We ended up using a 6 lb ham, and my husband thinks that next time we should put on some pineapple!"
"Delicious! The house smelled wonderful while it was baking, and the ham was so moist and flavorful! Will definitely make again."
