Store-bought glaze vs Natural Honey

If you are a ham lover, it is very likely that you have had a honey cured ham. Have you ever looked at the ingredients in a ham glaze pack for a honey cured ham?  You would be shocked at the ingredient list.  The ingredients include:  sugar, high fructose corn syrup, water, honey modified food starch, soybean oil, sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate (preservatives), cellulose gum, caramel color, spice, natural and artificial flavor, calcium disodium EDTA.  Compare this with Mrs. Bryant's approach to glazing a ham.  Simply open a jar of Mrs. Bryant's Cherry Apple Sauce (no sugar added - just cherries and apples) or if you want that "honey" taste - just use the monk's Monastery Creamed Honey (pure raw Virginia honey) or combine the two.  You pick- you will be surprised as how much better the healthier choice tastes.Other natural alternatives include:  Wildwood's Hickory Syrup and Virginia Chutney Company's Chutneys.  Simply coat your ham and bake, grill, or broil.  Order your ham and glazes on-line today!
