Brown Sugar Glaze for Ham

March 19, 2008

You can use this glaze on any type of ham you happen to be baking. Just don’t forget to stick whole cloves into the scoring. SAM

Whole cloves
1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons dry sherry

Score the ham into a diamond pattern and stick whole cloves into the crosses. Mix well the sugar, flour, mustard, cinnamon, and sherry and spread on the ham before baking.
Makes enough for one 10-pound whole ham.
