I don't usually actually glaze the ham with this; I just make it to serve along side the ham, so that people who don't like anything on their ham can be happy, too. This is so pretty, tasty, and smells heavenly when you're preparing it! This recipe was a contest winner in Country Woman which caused me to be invited to be one of the original 1,000 Taste of Home Field Editors. :)
