For over 25 years, I've made this beautiful ham in a golden crust at holiday dinners, and people think I'm the fanciest cook they ever met—never knowing how simple it was to prepare. Serve it with your favorite sauce. —Sharon Devereaux, Speedway, Indiana
This is an easy dish to prepare, yet elegant enough for company. I'm always asked for the recipe. I adapted it from one of my mother's recipes. And now, this is one of the few ways I can get our daughters to enjoy asparagus!
This slow-cooked entree is tender and delicious with regular or turkey ham. "My family loves this dish," writes Julie Williquette of Hartselle, Alabama. "Simmered in pineapple juice, the ham slices are so flavorful."
I created this recipe many years ago with items I already had on hand. Since then, it has become a family favorite. The ham is succulent with a mild citrus flavor. I was asked to share the recipe with a church social and there were so many raves, I knew the recipe was a winner! —Sheila Christensen, San Marcos, California
This is one of the dishes Grandma served to our family during the holidays. Now, when the family gathers and I prepare this for my grandchildren, memories of those special times at Grandma's house fill my mind. I usually double this recipe, because the leftovers are fabulous when warmed in the microwave.
MY MOM was known as the best cook in the country. This delicious glaze was in her collection of handwritten recipes. I laminated the ones I use most often, and this favorite was included.
It's easy to prepare, and everyone seems to like ham made this way.

I've made this ham many times over the years for my children and grandchildren. They're all very fond of it. Honey, brown sugar and pan juices create a succulent glaze.—Savannah Square, Mary Padgett, Savannah, Georgia
