Holiday Ham

This is ham recipe I most often make for a holiday or a large dinner.  It is very popular.  My husband loves it and calls it The Holiday Ham.  It has a sweet glaze, and Jory usually does not like that (he's not one to go for those sweet glaze packets you can buy), but he loves this.  He says it's not too sweet, just perfect.
