"I absolutely love making this ham for family gatherings or just for Sunday dinner. The ham is so tender it literally falls off the bone."

    Very convenient, delicious and tender. No worries if you cook even a little longer for instance if you are at church and can't be home to take out on the dime. For an ocassional main dish it is a winner and takes the pressure off the cook while looking like a whiz. The glaze is perfect and the house smells fab while cooking. Shazam we"ll have ham!

    So Amazing! I made this for Easter supper and it was wonderful! Who'd have thought that such few ingredients could make ham so yummy. This will be our only ham glaze from now on; thank you, These hands can cook.

    I made this yesterday for Easter and my family LOVED it!!! I don't ever make ham because I don't care for it, but I really liked it too and will definitely make it again! My Grandma, Aunt, and MIL all wanted the recipe. Thanks!

    Super easy, everything was on hand & the results were delicious! The meat was so tender with a nice sweet & tangy flavor. I used an 8 lb. boneless ham & followed the directions exactly. I had to try this recipe mainly because of the name. My family got a giggle out of it too. Made a wonderful centerpiece for Christmas dinner. Thanks for sharing!

    Fabulous ham!!!! Sweet and sour and oh, so tender!!!!! Thank, you These Hands!!!!!


I teach at both a high school and college several miles away from home. Cooking during the week is sometimes difficult to do so I'm always looking for easy recipes I can incorporate into a busy week. On weekends, you'll usually find me cooking up a storm for occassional leftovers for the week or to entertain guests. My favorite tool to cook with... the grill. If I didn't live so close to the cities, I'd cook over an open pit fire every night. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
