I tried this recipe for our christmas ham. I microwaved it for 5 minutes and took it out to stir it and all seemed well. I put it back into the microwave for the final five minutes. When I came back to the microwave to get it it had boiled over onto the bottom of the microwave. I had to use a spoon to chip it off of the microwave turn table and it melted my microwave safe bowl...not to mention the smell of burned sugar the permeated the kitchen. This recipe has problematic issues. Read More

I halved the recipe and used it on ham slices that I had heated in a skillet. The glaze thickened nicely and my family devoured the ham. Read More

We really liked this. It was mild but added just the right of tangy sweetness to our ham. I grilled ham steaks on the grill and brushed them with this a couple of times towards the end of grilling. Super simple...will use on ham again! Read More
