This is a re-post from March 25, 2012, but as Easter nears, we are often asked the best way to cook a delisious Zweber Farm’s Ham. This recipe is a goody.
It is that time of year again where people are searching for glazed ham recipes for their Easter celebrations. If you have a Zweber Farms humanely, raised ham in your freezer, you are in good shape. Our hams are delicious and juicy. Remember if your ham is smoked (unless you specified fresh hams, it is), it is ready to eat out of the freezer. Most people prefer their hams warm and with a few added flavors. I loved glazed ham, but don’t like recipes that are overly sweet. This recipe is has a tangy sweet flavor. Just perfect for Easter.
Here is a super easy and tasty glazed ham recipe and that will
