  1. I would like to candyize my glaze after my spiral ham is finished. I assuming it is kinda like creme brulee. Can anyone who has done this walk me through the method of torching the glaze like candy? I doing this for thanksgiving.
  2. Well, depending on what's in your glaze it's pretty easy. You'll want a fairly high sugar content and then just hit it with a blowtorch. If you have a spreader tip it's easier, but you can do it with a pencil tip. Just keep the flame moving and do a small area at a time. I did like a grid pattern, basically divided the surface into 2" squares in my mind and doing each one, then moving on to the next. It's fun and REALLY freaks the wife out!! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

    Can't really see the tip of the torch because it was a 2 second exposure and it was moving, but you can see the flame.

  3. Hey thanks! I'm sure gonna give it a try!
