There is nothing liked glazed ham for Christmas. That is the only time we seem to eat ham in our family (and turkey of course). We do both, after all it is only once a year! Here is a picture of our ham this year. I do it with apricot jam, brown sugar and vinegar but I love this honey glaze idea and would like to try it sometime.

The orange juice and zest gives a nice bright flavor to the glaze, and it is so fitting if you are using an orange blossom honey in the mix! Whenever I see ham on sale I pick one up and cook it on a lazy Saturday when I am home doing cleaning, bills, etc... and take advantage of it throughout the week! You can throw together tasty sandwiches, breakfast casseroles, or even as a ready to use pizza topping throughout the busy week!

This ham looks absolutely fabulous. We don't normally eat pork in our house, due to one of us not liking it, but we might have to convince them to let us make this for this Christmas season, as we have family coming over that love pork, and are bringing some.

I've been looking for a honey glaze recipe. I'm going to use this one. Firstly it looks absolutely amazing and secondly because honey is expensive and I don't want to waste it. I am making a ham and honey glazed duck for Christmas day. Then I'm going to baste my ham with this glaze. Any good duck recipes anyone? I'm still perusing this site for one. Hope I find it!

This looks delicious AND super easy. This is definitely the recipe I'll be making this Christmas.
