Ham Glaze

  • l

I'm picking up a spiral ham at Costco today. Last year it came with a package of glaze you pour on an hour before it was done, it wasn't that good. Can anyone recommend an easy glaze that isn't to sweet? Every glaze seems to have alot of brown sugar or honey. Thank you

  1. I use a recipe from one of the Barefoot Contessa's books - it's easy (especially if you have a food processor) delicious, and everyone loves it - throw 6 cloves of garlic, 8.5 ounces of mango chutney, 1/2 cup Dijon, 1 cup of brown sugar, and 1/4 cup OJ with the zest from one orange in a food processor. Process until smooth, pour glaze on ham, and cook for an hour. That's it!

      That sounds wonderful! Thank you very much.

    2. If you want a store bought ham glaze, the Crosse & Blackwell English ham glaze made from tart cherries is very good.
