From here all you have to do is combine each of these ingredients (besides ham) in a saucepan until it starts to boil. Be sure to stir occasionally. Roast the ham as usual simply adding the mixture periodically throughout the roasting process. Now you have successfully prepared a delicious glazed ham to be the main course of your picnic menu.
