I love to cook! And I love to cook with pork, there are so many different ways to season pork,sweet,sour even a little bit of both, it's just as easy to make as chicken, you can grill it,bake it,broil it, the list goes on and on. I grew up on a Hog Farm in Nebraska and we learned to make pork many different ways, this is one of the ways I make my Easter Ham's. I hope this Ham finds its way to your table top soon! Enjoy!!
