I love Paula deans products. I purchased a ham for our Easter holiday and I found it to be extremely salty that we could not even eat it. Sorry would not recommend it.

Just lost my mother last month. My sister is planning on having Easter dinner and is asking me about what kind of ham to get bone in or out. Since that is a question we would have asked our Mom and she isn't with us, we need suggestions

I tried this Ham recipe last Christmas and it was great! I am doing it again this year. So simple but oh sooooo gooood. A lot easier to get the seasoned salty taste with the soy sauce that you need with a fresh ham. Enjoy all and again thanks Paula for the recipe.

I made this ham a few years ago when the recipe was featured on Paula's Home Cooking. I failed to print the recipe, but remembered the preparation process. I couldn't remember the oven temp or time for baking, so I just Googled Paula Deen and pork. I'm glad I found this website and this recipe so I'll have the opportunity to finally print it for keeps. By the way, we're having this ham (as well as chitterlings) for Thanksgiving instead of a turkey. This is much better. wink
