I've tried quite a few glazes but this one really is a hit! Who knew that some rum, sweet stuff and mustardy zing would produce such an outstanding ham. A must try.

My family and I love this glaze. The flavor is more mildly sweet than a lot of other recipes, and the mustard and cider balance it out really well. Someone said that the molasses was overpowering, if you make sure to simmer at least 8-10 minutes it sort of mellows it out, and helps make sure the flavors all combine well.


I made this for dinner last night for our Easter ham. It was delicious and every one loved it. I made it exactly as the recipe said.
