“I made my own homemade cranberry sauce instead of using canned. This is the most delicious ham I've ever made. Sue Seymour of Valatie, New York says she serves this for brunch and dinner at family reunions, weddings, graduations, holiday gatherings, and other events. Recipe courtesy of Taste of Home Contest Winning Annual Recipes 2009.”
