Reviews for Sweet & Spicy Apricot-Glazed Ham
"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."
"This was an instant hit. Made it the first time the year it debuted in L&T and I've used it exclusively ever since."
"The glaze was amazing! My bf was skeptical but when he tried it he finished his whole slice of ham in a matter of seconds! Will definitely keep this recipe for future holidays."
"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."
