Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Sweet and spicy ham glaze, GF

From the book, I got this glaze recipe for a ham.

We had purchased a large ham on sale and decided we would attempt to cook it. Neither of us have cooked ham before. The boyfriend attempted to inject it with liquid smoke,Then dry rubbed some seasoning on it. What? Don't know, he just went nuts with the spices, like usual. But after that we made the glaze.  It is from the cookbook- The Gluten Free Bible

3/4 c brown sugar packed good
1/3 c cider vinegar (I used apple)
1/4 c golden raisins
1 can sliced peaches in heavy syrup,  drained and cut up !! save the syrup!!
1 tbs cornstarch
1/4 c OJ
1 can crushed pineapple (don't drain)
1 tbs grated orange peel
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger (I used dried ginger)

1. Combine brown sugar, vinegar, raisins, and peach syrup in pan. Bring to boil on high heat. Reduce heat to low, simmer 8-10 mins,
2. Whisk cornstarch in OJ until smooth. Add to sauce pan with your stuff from #1
3. Add pineapple, orange peel, garlic, red pepper flakes, & ginger into pan. Bring back to boil on medium heat. It will thicken. Stir constantly.

After the ham was baked for a good portion of time (like 30 minutes prior to being done based on weight) add 1/2 of glaze. Back into the oven, 30 minutes, remove and add rest of glaze.

OMG this glaze was yummy and addictingly delicious. It was also spicy but I like spicy! I definitely recommend but not for the weak! Will definitely make again!
