This was so good! I've been wanting to make it ever since I saw the recipe—but haven't had an occasion to cook a big ham to serve it with. We had it at Easter, and 6 adults and a couple of kids ...

It was very good. Makes a lot. Mine did not look like this, I think I used a bowl that was to big. Not sure how long will last in refrigerator. I always make things that have 5 stars.

Won't make Easter ham without it!

Interesting side note: We've been making this recipe for years and I recently found it in an old celebrity cookbook submitted by Bette Davis.

awesome! everyone LOVED it! I will make it a holiday tradition.
