Dawn, This is an awesome and easy recipe for honey baked ham! The fruit juices were great for basting (Although I continually basted with just the fruit juices for a 1/2 hour, then put on the honey/brownsugar glaze and continued to baste every 15 minutes until my meat thermometer reached 140. (it ended up cooking for about 2 hours in the end). the ham was very flavourful, and the basting really cut a lot of the saltiness of ham. Thanks! This recipe is a keeper!

We just had one of the best Easter meals I've ever made thanks to this recipe. My family LOVED the ham, and it was so simple. I didn't carmalize the ham, but it was awesome just the same. Thank you!
