    This recipe was perfect for a day when there's 10 inches of snow on the ground! I loved the combination of smokey, sweet, and salty flavors. I only soaked my apples for a couple hours in a can of chicken broth (I microwaved them for about 2 minutes to get a jump on the soaking). This one's definitely going into my winter-dinner repetoire. A delicious and easy way to cook ham without "babysitting" it forever -- thanks for sharing!
