    I was a bit confused by the ingredients list - was that an error implying it was already baked ham that was put in the oven?  -  05 Feb 2016


    This was very yummy. Somenone blessed us with sliced ham. I threw everything in a sauce pan, cut up the ham slices and tossed everything together. Served it on brown and serve buns. I did end up adding 3tb orange juice instead of two on the count of my honey. I use a very strong honey. Over all, this is a keeper. Thank you !  -  26 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is one of the best Hams that I have ever made! I actually doubled the recipe so I had plenty of glaze on hand. I made my ham the day before so I wanted to be able to rebaste it for reheating the next day. Came out wonderful and I'm so glad that I tried this. This is now going to be my stock ham recipe! My family loved it and I couldn't keep my husband away from it! Thanks for sharing.  -  29 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
