“This is wonderfully sweet and tangy from the cherries, A slight kick from the Ginger and saltiness and smokiness from the ham it self! A very easy recipe using cherry and ginger preserves. I enjoy the ease of spiral sliced hams but use what you like best. 1/4 - 1/3 lb. per serving of boneless ham 1/3 - 1/2 lb. of meat per serving of ham with little bone 3/4 - 1 lb. of meat per serving of ham with large bone”
