    I made this glaze for our Thanksgiving ham and there wasn't a bite left for sandwiches the next day. Thank you Kellie it was wonderful!  -  30 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Tastes really good! i added a bit of pineapple juice to the ketchup. I also think that scarring the ham or letting the ketchup mixture marinate would give it more taste. Besides that it was wonderful.  -  16 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    For those of you who don't like ketchup or would prefer a little bit more tang this recipe works equally well using yellow mustard instead of ketchup.  -  18 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
