How to cook a honey baked ham ?
I bought a large (10 lbs) bone-in ham-hickory smoked and am trying to prep a honey baked ham for the first time. Not sure if it says cooked or not but the instructions say it needs to be put in oven 10 minutes per pound at 325 F.
What is the simplest way to make a honey baked ham ?
How about just plain sugar ? Will it have similar effect ? Or close enough ?
Or any other ideas ?
This is not a Honey baked, but I made this and it was delicious, a back up if you can't find what you are looking for. From www.foodtv.com
