“Since finding this recipe, it's become my favorite way to cook ham. My family loves the crunchy crust that bakes on the ham...very yummy! The recipe came from a cookbooklet that I received in one of our swaps. Very Important Note: be sure to use a fully cooked cured ham which only needs to warmed through for this recipe.”
