This is the ultimate party dish. The glaze takes only a minute to make and the ham tastes like you worked for hours. We order a "spiral-cut" smoked ham from the butcher, so we don't even have to slice it! How lazy is that? I like to serve it for cocktails with mini corn muffins or for dinner with extra mustard and chutney.
Choose the best quality ham you can find, and either buy a "spiral-cut" ham, or have the butcher slice and retie a whole smoked ham.
