Brown Sugar Glazed Ham
Enjoy this Brown Sugar Glazed Ham recipe that is one of the classic ways to prepare this delightful meat. Preserved meats have really fallen in to deep disrepute because of the preservatives in them that have been called by the World Health Organization as “carcinogenic.” So people are a bit more leery now about what kinds of foods that they eat, as well as how those foods are preserved for them to eat them. This brown sugar glazed ham recipe uses a combination of dried apricot and brown sugar. There is a choice to use a sugar substitute for this rub that you put on the ham recipe. If you have not tried sugar substitutes before, be aware that their flavor is sweet, but that they often have quite different finishes and kinds of sweetness than ordinary white sugar. So you might want to try the sugar substitute on one half of the ham recipe and the other real sugar on the other side of the ham recipe and make a comparison to see which one you and your family enjoy.

Ham is such a prized meat that you have to meet strict requirements in order to call the meat product you might be producing as ham. Some types of ham such as prosciutto are specially protected.
Enjoy this ham recipe on any night when you want to eat something that is a bit special and extra delicious.
