This has been our holiday ham for many years. I started with my Grandmother's recipe for a brown sugar ham, adding the herb crust and using a few tips I've read over the years. The tip of starting with a higher temperature is from the show America's Test Kitchen. The leftover ham is good for sandwiches and can be frozen. If you are making this for Christmas, save the ham bone to cook with some black-eyed peas for a traditional, Southern, New Years Day.
