Look no further for an absolutely finger-licking glaze for your ham!

Forget the glaze packet that comes with your ham, this brown sugar glaze is super quick and easy to make and tastes much better than the store-bought stuff.  It’s ready in about 10 minutes and keeps for at least a couple of weeks in the fridge.

With multiple layers of deliciously balanced flavors, this homemade brown sugar glaze incorporates a variety of spices along with honey, pineapple juice and mustard.  For a different flavor dimension you can also swap out the honey for maple syrup.  And if you prefer you can also substitute orange juice for the pineapple juice.  Either way, your ham is going to be a hit!

Place all of the ingredients in a medium sauce pan.

Bring it to a simmer and simmer over medium heat for 7-10 minutes, stirring frequently, until the mixture is slightly syrupy (it will thicken as it cools).

For the best flavor, refrigerate overnight to allow the flavors to fully develop.  This brown sugar glaze will keep in the fridge for about 2 weeks.
