I was looking for a way to use the last of my homemade apple butter and thought it would make a great ham glaze. We tried it and my hubby couldn't get enough. Hope you like it too!

I glazed my Thanksgiving ham with this.. I didnt have the minced onion so I left it out.. I had made All Day Apple Butter (recipe from this site). I also sliced up the ham layed the slices in a pan and then put the sauce over it.. I baked it at 350 for about 35 minutes.. This turned out so yummy.. Made the ham taste fantastic.. I'm not a ham person at all and usually skip the ham during Thanksgiving but I ate more of the ham than the turkey this year.. Thank you for such a great recipe.. Read More

OMG! This was the best ham I've ever made (DH said so and he's a meat and potatoes kinda guy). I had a 9.5lb shank that I covered with foil and cooked at 350 for 2.5 hours. Then I made the glaze and removed the foil and lowered the temp to 325 and cooked for 1 hour. Talk about aromatic and juicy and tasty! DH said I can NOT lose the recipe!!!! Thank you!!! V Read More

Loved it! I whisked all of the ingredients right into a large skillet along w/some ham steaks & let it all simmer together. Subtle flavor not overpowering or sickly sweet like similar recipes. I'll definately be making this again! Thank you!! Read More

This was very easy to make. I used the All-Day Apple butter as well. I wouldn't recommend using a smoked ham...I felt like the cmoked flavor over powered the apple flavor. The glaze by itself was wonderful and smelled delicious! I would recommend putting it on more than 30 minutes before your ham is finished (I used a 10 lb ham), and to broil it for 5-10 minutes to help caramelize the glaze. Read More

Best glaze ever! Everyone loved it. I didn't use the dried onion but I couldn't imagine that it would have been any better. I cooked my ham as directed and sliced it. I placed a layer of ham in the roasting pan and liberally brushed the glaze on then another and so on. I poured the remaining glaze over the top layer and put it back in the over at 350 for 30 minutes. Read More
