  • 6 tablespoons Dijon mustard (smooth or grainy)
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Step 1:
Mix the 1 cup liquid honey with 6 tablespoons Dijon mustard and 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce in a small bowl or container.

When mixed well, pour 1/2 of the sauce over the smoked ham recipe before you cook it and reserve the rest of the ham glaze to baste with when cooking the ham.

Combine the remaining 8 ingredients of the glaze to the saucepan with the pureed onion/garlic and stir well to combine.

Bring just to a boil then reduce heat and simmer until the glazing sauce thickens.

Baste the pork roast with this several times as it cooks to build up a nice thick coating.

Reserve some of the sauce if you want to drizzle over the sliced roast after its cooked.
