I fix this moist, tender ham to serve my large family. It can be readied quickly in the morning, frees up my oven, tastes outstanding and can feed a crowd. Covered with colorful pineapple slices, cherries and orange glaze, its showstopping appearance appeals to both children and adults. —Denise DiPace, Medford, New Jersey

"I am not a ham fan, but this was AWESOME! I don't know what went wrong with the girl who said this was dry, because this is the most tender, juiciest ham I have ever had. Hands down. The. Best. What I did different was 1) the ham -- I shopped late and my choices were limited so I ended up with a 7 pound, cured and fully cooked semi-boneless; 2) what I thought was pineapple slices in my pantry turned out to be pineapple chunks -- still delicious; 3) I had a 17 ounce jar of marmalade and while I did not use 17 ounces, I may have used a bit more than 12. My sides were homemade scalloped potatoes, Italian green beans, devilled eggs, salad, and fresh garlic bread. Best Easter meal I have ever made! :)"

"When they say cook in half, does it mean long wise or down the middle."

"What is meant by "top with the ham pieces?" What ham pieces."

"Wonderful, old-fashioned recipe! BobbiMinko: it means you cut the ham in half and cook BOTH pieces, presumably to help it cook a bit faster in the crockpot. Hope you enjoy it!"

"It says ham (halved) are you only supposed to cook half of the ham?"

"I first made this recipe about 8 years ago. It has consistently been a hit with everyone I have served it to. Best yet the leftover ham is terrific for soup, casseroles, or sandwiches! This happens every holiday at our house by family request."

"I made for Christmas dinner again this year. Did not have orange marmalade, so I used peach preserves instead. Still tender and delicious ham. Will make again at Easter."
