"The glaze was amazing definitely 5stars on its own it was the garlic that was just over-powering for me and my family. i'd suggest using half the garlic or just a few cloves inserted randomly thru-out the ham just to lighten the load of it."

"I started using this glaze on my Easter ham 7 years ago. Up to that point we had always used a pineapple glaze. My family insists on the apricot glaze now and I've been asked for the recipe multiple times."
