was excellent...i keep a few different types of mustard around so i'm gonna try a different one each time i make this recipe... item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just so good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Glaze is perfect item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was great, even my fiance who does not like ham loved it. I was concerned about the combination of brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, and mustard for the glaze but it was excellent, not too sweet nor did it taste like apple cider vinegar. We served it with mashed potatoes and oven roasted brussels sprouts, yum! I would suggest lining the roasting pan (or whatever you use to bake the ham) with aluminum foil for easier clean up. It was a little difficult to clean the glaze off of the pan once it was baked on. We will definitely use this one again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was a big hit with everyone! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yum! I used deli mustard and bourbon instead of the vinegar on a non-spiral sliced ham. It was a crowd pleaser. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! I used glaze on a spiral ham, but omitted the cloves. The mustard gave a little more tang than I wanted so next time will just use less. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Used for first time this recipe. I can say that it was one of the best ever ham I had made, especially the glaze. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've used this recipe for years. I use it to make gravy also. So many people say you can't make ham gravy. It is wonderful and my whole family devours it. Nancy item not reviewed by moderator and published
Terrific glaze. Kept spooning it up over the ham as it cooked, mixed with the drippings. I had steamed carrots, and it was delicious on the carrots as well. Will make it for carrot even when I don't cook ham. Thanks item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent....family devoured the ham! A definite KEEPER! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Cant keep everyone off of this ham, yummy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Oh My Goodness! This was the first Christmas Ham I have ever made.. and it was AmAzInG! I could not believe the sweet from the juices, honey and brown sugar, but then that lil spice from the chipotle peppers!! This was so delish... and I will use this recipe for years to come. Also... it was so EZ!! Thanks item not reviewed by moderator and published
DEELISH! I made it for Easter and now my family has requested it along with a turkey for Thanksgiving this year. It's the only way that I will ever bake a ham! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was so easy and tasted so YUMMY! I omitted the cloves for I didn't have any on hand and just used the mustard, brown sugar, and apple cider vinegar! Definitely beats Saucy Susan and tastes amazing! item not reviewed by moderator and published
didnt use even half the glaze. it all slid off yet it coated the ham good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm giving it a 5 because it is basically the same glaze as I've used for over 50 years. The difference being that I use ONLY a 15 to 20 lb smoked WHOLE ham (I had a large family starting with 4 children when I started cooking. Of course we always had ham to eat for several days. Sandwiches; hash; salad, and picking. They've now grown to 18 members of us: 4 spouses, 8 grands and 2- grands-in- laws). We now have very little left for picking on the day after Christmas. Oh yes, one more thing: they expect to see pineapples all over it. Talk about SPOILED. But I love them. I'm sure the tradition willl go on. I'm as bad as they are, I love it too and love making it for them. They do everything else and my oldest daughter always volunteers to do the ham, but I haven't relinquished yet. Merry Christmas to all. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't wait to add the glaze, I added the glaze to the ham and covered it tightly in a clay roaster. After it was done, I put all the glaze into a an open saucepan and reduced it until it was a thickened glaze. Yummm item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this glaze for my ham this Easter and it was good but too much melted away into the juices in the bottom of the pan. I would recommend saving a bit of the glaze back and warming it up in a small saucepan just enough to melt the brown sugar crystals. Then when your ready to serve, retopping the ham with the reserved glaze. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this ham glaze tonight and my family loved it! I don't normally glaze my ham, but from now on it will be done with thise. It was so easy and tasted so good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this ham last night, but when I poured the glaze over the top of the ham, it all ended up in the bottom of the pan & burned! I would like the other reviewers to give me their tips! Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I cooked for 15 women at Thanksgiving, everyone was looking forward to eating Ham, i used this recipe for the first time and people are raving about it. I even got a request to make it for Christmas. I can't say good enough things about this recipe. The result would be a very moist, flavorful Ham and you will be the hit of the dinner party. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The absolute best glaze I have ever used, & terribly simple. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really just a great, simple recipe. We used it on a 1-1/2 think bone in-steak. I substituted the Splenda/Brown Sugar Mixture (don't forget to half the amount). Also, we had just run out of cider vinegar and had to use red wine vinegar. It still turned out fantastic and will be a staple in our house. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Tried this for Christmas dinner and everyone enjoyed the fabulous taste! Very moist and tasty! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great tasting recipe. It was so easy to make and the end result is outstanding! I made the ham with the glaze,along with a turkey, for Thanksgiving. Guess which one didn't last for long. Yup, I'm still eating turkey sandwiches! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Everyone who ate it said it was the best flavored ham they had ever eaten. Absolutely incredible flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Recently, I cooked this ham with the brown sugar and mustard glaze it was the best ever. I had a 13 pound ham and it was all gone. The flavor was to die for. I put a few more cloves in and around the ham and I just poked them in the ham. I also took my baster and poured the ham juice over the entire ham twice through out the cooking process. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This ham tasted wonderful. I used a 13 pound ham with the bone and we had to cook it for about three hours. But we used the glaze as suggested. It was rich and flavorful.

MY MOM USED THIS ON OUR EASTER HAM WHEN WE WERE GROWING UP. I DECIDED TO USE IT ON THE CHRISTMAS HAM----IT BROUGHT BACK THE BEST FAMILY MEMORIES & TASTES DELISH! VERY EASY YET FLAVORFUL.
