Spiced Ham with Apple Relish Recipe

If you think Thanksgiving turkey tastes good as a leftover, try this. The ham's wonderful served cold on a bun with hot or cold relish spooned on the top. The meat can be slices and cooked up in a soup as well or added to a green bean casserole. The only problem I've had is having leftovers to begin with! -Vicki Tasker, Oakland, Maryland
