If you're going to roast a leg of ham, try this honey and cloves recipe. It has a moist sweet taste which you'll find delightful.
Beyond perfection - and really easy! I had a 20 lb ham, so I did two sticks of butter and a cup and half of honey. I only really had to baste a handful of times. My company raved and raved and raved about this, asking where I bought the ham, and trying to decide why it was so delicious--everyone wanted to take leftovers. A huge success! - 08 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Very easy & very good. I had plenty of lefover butter mix for my 10.5 lb ham, so if you don't have all the butter on-hand, don't sweat it. The ham came out wonderfully moist & still a little sweet. I did have to cover the ham with tin foil half-way through as the top was burning quite a bit, but I will definitely use this recipe again! - 25 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Ham is not my favorite meal. My family loves it so every so often I make it. I have to say this was one of the better hams I've tasted. I would make this again. The butter and honey gave the ham a wonderful flavor. Tender and didn't taste like a sugar glaze. Very good. - 19 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
