I CAME UP with this recipe several summers ago. I had a ham in the refrigerator and was trying to avoid heating up the kitchen by preparing it in the oven. The stovetop was the solution. Ever since, this recipe has been my standby for when I have leftover ham. Served over rice, it's delicious! —Diane Widmer Blue Island, Illinois
