You can almost taste the sweet, sticky glaze on a freshly baked ham, right?  Brown Sugar Ham Glaze and other finishing sauces are a staple for any Ham Dinner.  We want to share our special recipe and other favorites to add to your bone in ham glaze recipe collection!

Without a doubt, our best ham recipes include one of our favorite glazes. You'll need a cooked ham, that has not been re-heated yet and time to make your glaze prior to heating the ham.

Brown Sugar Ham Glaze:

Step 1: Mix together 1 1/2 c. Brown Sugar, 1/2 c. Honey, 2 Tablespoons Corn Starch in a small pot over medium heat on the stove.

Step 2: Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat for a low boil and cook for 15 minutes or until sugar is completely dissolved.  Be sure to stir it constantly.

Step 3: Remove the glaze from the stove.

Step 4: Now that glaze is complete, brush entire ham with glaze prior to starting the heating process, reserving glaze to brush on the ham two times during the heating process and upon removal from the oven.  Serve & enjoy!
