The glaze is wonderful on this ham, and easy to put together ahead of time for a holiday meal.

I made this recipe last year and it was beyond a hit...it is now demanded. I literally am pulling my ham out of the over in less than 10 minutes and the house is filled with the sweet aromas and our belly's are growling.

this looks wonderful and want to try it, I am curious as to what kind of ham you are using. I never see 6 lb boneless hams anywhere except in the deli. Is that what you are using?

I changed up the preserves from apricot to orange marmalade mixed with pineapple jam I had on hand. Left off the sliced pineapple & cherries. Loved it and now make my ham this way every time.

This is the glaze I have been using for years. My husband raves to everyone about how great my ham is. I haven't even thought about making a different glaze since I found this recipe. It's sweet, but not overwhelming.
