My mom's recipe. She glazes this ham in the microwave, but it can easily be done in the oven as well.

So I boiled the ham which made it really tender. I was surprised. But the sauce wasn't really my cup of tea. It was certainly edible but it really tasted like the three ingredients did not meld in any way. And it reminded be of barbecue sauce. My husband seemed to like it the kids ate it... it was okay.

I made this exactly as the recipe. Didn't care too much for the flavor of the sauce it was like the other reviewer said like the flavors just did not go together. And I don't know if it was the boiling of the ham or what although it was very tender it was spongy. And the sauce made it a very unappealing color. Was no longer pink and appealing like ham should be. Read More
