  • If you want salty - don't do anything to it, just cover and bake til hot through. Hams are already smoked and plenty salty. You don't need a glaze to keep it moist - just keep it covered (or in those baking bags).

  • Okay, why don't we start with ideas of how you do want it to taste. Do you like spicy?

  • This one looks good if you like smokey chipotle flavor.  It does use pineapple and brown sugar though, but there are other spices.


    Most of the recipes I am finding use sweeter ingredients.

  • The glaze is how you will keep the ham moist. If you don't want sweet then find ingredients (or substitute) that don't have a sweet finish. I find some that call for soda (Coke), dry or prepared mustard, maple syrup (wondering if you could sub agave nectar). I think ham is salty by nature, so adding more salt would possibly dry the meat out. I think using more mustard might cut down on the sweet flavor.


    I hope someone posts recipes for a less sweet tasting ham.  I am curious as to what you would use.  Here's a bump!
