“This ham recipe was given to my mother by a mom & pop restaraunt owner. The owner did all of her own cooking and had a little restaraunt right on the corner of our street. Everyone raved about her ham. My mother helped her out a lot so she gave mom the recipe. Everyone raves about this ham at Christmas and Easter! The secret is to slice it soon after it is done and let the slices sit in the juice in the fridge. Then when you are ready to serve, reheat at 350 in the oven right in the roaster with the juice. Leftovers are great on a soft roll with butter. Prep and cook time is approximate.”
