Straight off Food Network Food Bytes. I saw this mini-mercial and decided I was going to make this ham for Christmas instead of paying for a honey baked. This looks so simple and delicious.

Terrific ham , wow! My DH couldn't stop raving about it. I did skip the nuts due to an allergy that one of our guests had, but otherwise prepared this as written. We really enjoyed this! Made for ZWT 3:)
