This was a hit with the entire family (2 years to 68 years)and worthy of a special occasion. Everyone loved the glaze but I think a recipe like this will ultimately depend on the quality of the ham. I didn't have cajun mustard so used a mix of what I did have, which was dijon, stone ground and yellow mustards. Didn't seem to hurt at all.
