“If you like spice, then try this ham, not only is is easy to make it's very good! If you are not a garlic-lover then omit the garlic powder. Cooking time is for a 6 pound ham or a little smaller, if you are using a larger ham then double the jelly mixture and adjust cooking time, or use two 6-pound hams.”
