Honey Baked Glazed Ham!

This was DELICIOUS & made great gravy too!
I made a 1/4 Ham portion Choose the size ham you need!
Double the recipe ingredients for 1 whole ham. cooking time will be the same!

1/2 Cup Honey 
2 Teaspoons prepared Yellow Mustard
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
Stir together & heat in the microwave until honey is thin. Mix well. The mustard does not combine completely but it does not matter!
Baste the ham with all of the mixture!
Bake in a preheated 350 degree  oven for an hour & half, basting about 3 times through the cooking!  Once cooked remove from oven & let rest for a few minutes & then carve! Crispy sweet crust & juicy meat GREAT & EASY for your dinner! Use drippings from the pan to make gravy!
All the pan drippings
about 1 & 1/2 Cups Water ( I use the water from my potatoes I cook to make mashed potatoes, this adds starch for thickening & more flavor!
Stir 2 Heaping Tablespoons of Cornstarch into 1/2 Cup cold water. Bring the drippings & potato water to a boil & stir in your smooth & well combined cornstarch mixture. IF you let the cornstarch mixture sit for any length of time just stir again & it will smooth right out otherwise the cornstarch sinks to the bottom & get firm & you want blended smooth cornstarch! Stir & cook mixture until thick & bubbling! TERRIFIC GRAVY!
