My mom always made our hams this way, and I have to say they were deliciously- delicious! We always had lots of compliments and asking for the recipe! We usually made it for Easter, but occasionally we would make it for Christmas Eve, or New Year's Day either. Great served hot with twice baked or mashed potatoes and a squash, or green leafy side- or even served cold with a potato salad which we liked to do on Easter with a picnic!
