Asian Plum Ham Glaze Recipe

1 tsp. rice wine vinegar
2 tsp. hoisin sauce
2 tbsp. fresh chopped green onion
2 tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. toasted sesame seed
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
2 tsp. freshly grated ginger
Instructions: 1. Just put all your ingredients into a non-reactive pan and simmer gently for about 30-45 minutes.

Easy Ham Glaze Recipe: Sassy Mango-Peach
Hint: you can find organic or kosher nectars at many stores, but otherwise you can make your own from scratch to ensure quality.
1/2 C. mango nectar
1/2 C. peach nectar
2 tbsp. fresh minced pineapple
1 tbsp. fresh shredded coconut flakes
red pepper flakes to taste
Instructions: 1. While you may thicken this with about 1 tbsp of cornstarch and bring to a boil so it sticks to the meat. I prefer to reduce it. A little reduction and you don't need the binder. If you're using fresh fruits you'll need to reduce them gently anyway to create a texture that can be easily brushed on to the meat.
2. Bring all ingredients to a simmer in a small saucepan. Simmer on low heat until reduced somewhat. Once you're happy with the flavor, begin basting the ham with the sauce while it cooks.
SummaryGood baked ham glaze recipes aren't really hard to come by.... and fortunately, most of them are very easy to make. The key? Go for intense flavors, and don't be shy. Because your easy ham glaze just hugs the outside of the ham, the flavor will never be overpowering.
Just be patient with yourself and test along the way! In the end you want a flavor signature you and/or your family will love.
