"Very delicious. Received rave reviews from those who are "picky about ham"."
"I didn't use a spiral ham, but I don't think it mattered. Turned out moist and very flavorful. Will never use the flavor packets that come with certain ham, this glaze was so easy. Impressive!"
"This ham was amazing! I didn't use the cherries and instead of rubbing with the sugar and salt I mixed the pinneaple juice with it and poured it over the ham. I also basted once every 30 minutes during cooking. Loved it!"
"I made this ham for Easter and it was great. But I must say this, I bought a spiral ham which came with a glaze so I followed the recipe exactly and added the glaze that came with it. My family and friends loved it"
"Had people that dont like ham, try it and came back for seconds! Awesome recipe."
