Reviews forFestive Ham Glaze
"This is a fabulous ham! I only had time to marinate it for half a day & it was plenty flavorful. The spice level & sweetness were perfect. I didn't have an orange, so I subbed a half a jar each of orange marmalade & pineapple preserves for the orange peel & brown sugar. I would do this again the same way. Rave reviews. This is now my go to ham recipe."
"AMAZING!!! I've always searched for a great recipe for my ham. THE BEST. I made it for Easter dinner. Everyone loved it. I give this 10 ??"
"This is the best tasting ham glaze! It seems too easy to make to be so delicious. The men in my family decided it was the best ham they had ever had."
"My husband is SO PICKY and he raved about this glaze. It was very simple to prepare and was DELICIOUS. Basting the ham while it cooked gave it a great crusty, sweet glaze. I am going to try this on ham steaks tonight."
"After reading all of the baked ham recipes I am so glad I picked this recipe.it is so good! I like the idea of marinating the ham I put it in a roasting bag so all the juices would stay in the bag and turning it often instead of putting the ham in a bowl. This baked ham recipe was so delicious. I will keep this one in my recipe box and make it again. So good and very moist so easy."
