Favorite Restaurant Ham Recipe

This Cider Glazed Honey Baked Ham is created by basting the ham with an apple cider, brown sugar, and honey and mustard mixture with a bit of liquid smoke as it bakes.

The ham you cook will turn out fabulous. It is a favorite restaurant recipe.

People often ask me where I get my recipes. The answer is simple; anywhere I can find them - cookbooks, magazines and those that my customers and friends and relatives share. I look them over and either try them as written or tweak them (alter them) a little first and then give them a try.

If the restaurant guests like the results, they become real restaurant recipes. If the restaurant guests love the result of a recipe and order the meal a second and third time, the recipe becomes a favorite restaurant recipe.

If a particular recipe continues to sell well, it makes the menu!
