Joan Laurenzo of Johnstown, Ohio, shares an easy way to dress up ham at the table and have plenty left over for other meals. "The recipe for this sweet, tangy sauce was given to me by a friend nearly 30 years ago," Joan writes. "I usually serve this special entree with sweet potatoes, coleslaw or applesauce and rolls."

"We used this recipe for years at our rural hospital/nursing home and a few employees have pulled it out to use again this year at home. It's great."
