    I loved this recipe. I made it for Easter dinner. I made some changes. I omitted the water. After i marinated the ham, I poured the marinade into a sauce pan, let it reduce for ten mintues, and then poured it over the ham before I put it in the oven. Fantastic. Very juicy and very flavorful.  -  26 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Made this for Christmas dinner, and it was so goooood. The only thing I did different was to add a single serving bottle of cola to the marinade, and omitted the water from the pan since I had the liquid from the cola. This was a real hit, and we'll be having this again, no doubt about it. Thanks for the recipe!  -  28 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was awesome! I did change the recipe a bit - I doubled the glaze (without the water) and poured it over a sliced, 4-pound boneless ham, then cooked it in the crock pot on low for about 5-6 hours. It made a simple, delicious Easter ham - excellent flavor.  -  23 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
