"This did not turn out at all as I expected! The diamond cuts were dry. The glaze was more like caramel then a glaze. Didn't taste like a honey glaze. even my kids said it was dry."

"I loved the flavor of the Honey Glaze. I guess I don't like fully cooked boneless hams. Next time I will use the glaze on a bone-in ham."

"This recipe was the first ham I cooked for company and it was amaaaazing!! Didn't have cloves so I used nutmeg instead, and we used the remaining sauce as a glaze. My boyfriend doesn't normally like ham (too salty he says), but the ingredients perfectly balanced out the salt. Will definitely be my go-to recipe for future."

"Best glaze ever! Not just for ham. Great for smoked pork chops - marinate than grill! Family favorite - my Grandson calls it my 'Secret Sauce'!"

"The glaze is great. I suggest using a disposal roasting pan for much easier clean-up or no clean-up at all! It was a great hit with my family."
