  5. In a small bowl, mix together the rest of the ingredients to make the glaze.

Ham is one of those higher salt foods that can be enjoyed but in moderation. By poking the meat and slowly boiling it, it removes some of the salt. Lower the salt of canned foods like beans and vegetables by rinsing with warm water.
