This was the first time that I've ever done our holiday ham, and I was so happy with how crispy and juicy it turned out. It's going to be a new tradition. —Chrissy Clark, Boise, Idaho

"Delicious!!! Didn't change the type of brown sugar though....didn't realize until I had already made it. But it tasted great!!"

"Really liked the sauce. Didn't have light and dark brown sugar, so just used the dark I had. Thot it sounded like a lot of sugar, so I didn't do the sugar sprinkling at the end. It probably would have put a lovely crust on the ham, but I didn't miss it."

"We loved this ham. It was moist and tasty. I forgot to use the cloves and it was still really good. This will probably be our go-to ham recipe."
