Spiced Rhum Ham Glaze

Number of Servings: 
1
Yield: 
Batch
Prep Time: 
5 Minutes
Cook Time: 
5 Minutes
Ingredients: 

2/3 cup molasses
1 1/3 cup spiced rhum
3 tablespoon ginger root, fresh (minced)
1 tablespoon dry mustard (heaping)
2 teaspoon cloves (ground powder)
3 hot peppers (or more to taste)

Instructions: 

Mix all ingredients together & bring to a boil. Simmer a minimum of 5 minutes
Liberally coat ham or other meat
Bake in 300 degree F oven
Brush generously with glaze every hour

Notes: 

Also makes an excellent sauce post cooking. Defat the drippings, then reduce volume by half on a simmer. 1 to 2 teaspoons of corn starch, mixed with water to make a paste; add to simmering drippings while whisking. Serve in a gravy boat.
I usually defat using a baster, but will also cheat if not using the drippings right away & put them in the fridge or freezer so the fat solidifies on the top & is easy to remove.
