My Perfectly Good Husband’s Ham Glaze

You gotta know my “PERFECTLY GOOD HUSBAND”  is a great cook. This is his glaze for ham and everyone who has tasted this has wanted the recipe. Here goes:


  • 1 cup apple jelly
  • 1 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 2 tbsp. cornstarch mixed with 1/4 cup cold water

Put the ingredients,  except the cornstarch and water, in a small saucepan and, stirring to combine, bring to a simmer and make sure it is smooth.  Bake the ham according to instructions and remove from the oven. Score the fat on the ham. (yes, this is unusual)..Now pour the glaze over the ham and bake for 20-30 minutes longer at 325 degrees.

Thicken the sauce with the cornstarch and drizzle over the sliced ham and keep the remaining sauce in a gravy boat. EVERYONE will want more.
