Baked Ham Glaze (THM S, sugar free, low carb)
I don’t know about y’all but Baked Ham with a sugary glaze is one of our family traditions for Christmas! We have pretty much always had a “honey or brown sugar baked ham” on or around Christmas time. The smell is so amazing when you add that glaze to the baking ham…. oh my!
It was really important to me to make a glaze that would be amazing on our baking ham… and I think I succeeded!!
This glaze turned out so amazing I am trying to think of what else I can use this glaze for… maybe a sweet bbq glaze by adding a little tomato sauce, or a yummy baked chicken glaze or beef glaze or even a BBQ veggie glaze!
AND this glaze is EXTREMELY easy to make with very little ingredients and most of them you should have in your kitchen.
I used the THM Gentle Sweet… again, I will tell y’all how much I love that sweetener! If you are new to THM or just sugar free you NEED to give this sweetener a try. BEST SWEETENER on the market! I would not be caught with out it!!
