Honey Glazed Spiral Cut Ham is the most delicious almost candy-coated sweetness to complement this meat, it's over-the-top delicious and addicting.

The recipe is at the bottom of this post in a printable recipe card, (if you stroll through there is additional recipes for a complete meal) ham is the main course.

We usually just made ham on Easter then everyone loved this recipe so much it was another addition to Thanksgiving and sometimes Christmas Day.

With these delicious ingredients, it was no surprise, this ham was super delicious, melted in our mouth, juicy, tender, and sweet, a great addition to my recipe collection.

Mom always made ham this way but used seven up instead of pineapple juice, and loaded it with maraschino cherries (which you can still decorate the ham with).

I really loved this recipe and wanted to share it with everyone. It is super easy and the ingredients complement the ham perfectly.
