If you and your family love a sweet tart flavor this cherry ham glaze will be a success at your dinner party. I not only suggest that you glaze the ham with it, but also reserve some and placed it in a gravy boat for slathering on each slice of ham at the table. I personally love this recipe and it has been the rock star of every Christmas celebration at my house.
