Baked Apricot Glazed Ham with Maple Mustard
Just an old-fashioned glazed ham with a sweet spiciness that is perfect for your holiday party buffet table. Everyone will love this traditional ham! I like it thick sliced, each piece with a bit of glaze at the edge. The Maple Mustard sauce passed at the table kicks this main dish up at least two notches.
