I fix this moist, tender ham to serve my large family. It can be readied quickly in the morning, frees up my oven, tastes outstanding and can feed a crowd. Covered with colorful pineapple slices, cherries and orange glaze, tis showstopping appearance appeals to both children and adults. —Denise DiPace Medford, New Jersey
