This is beyond any doubt the BEST ham I have ever tasted – and the secret is all in the 3 ingredient ham glaze. (The ham recipe I’m sharing today is so completely worthy of hyperbole; I’ve given up attempting to write this post without it.)
You know how sometimes you make something that’s so good that even after you’re done with dinner you find yourself snacking on little bites as you put it away later? This was the first time I made ham.
It is tender and juicy with a sweet, tart, tangy glaze. Every mouthful is better than the previous.
Balsamic dijon glaze makes a great accompaniment to the ham. Just a few ingredients and almost no real effort gets you an extraordinarily impressive meal that’s as suited for special occasions as it is for an everyday dinner.
3 Ingredient Ham Glaze
Because the glaze requires only three ingredients, for years, I’ve recommended using the best quality ingredients you can manage. I’ve gone so far as to use a high-quality aged balsamic whenever I have it on hand.
Guess what I’ve learned? It doesn’t matter what balsamic vinegar is used to make this glaze for ham. It doesn’t matter how good the balsamic vinegar tastes, as long as it tastes good by itself.
