The Best Easter Ham Ever!!!

Who is ready for Easter next weekend???  If you are not, here is something that can help and it's easy 

There has been one style ham that we have made in my family forever!  It has been made in the oven along with using a slow cooker.  I love the slow cooker style because then it frees up the oven for all the other fun things that accompany the ham. 


In my family, this ham is so good that it is staple not only at Easter, but also Christmas.  As you can see of the little bit of the tablecloth, it was Christmas that this picture was taken.  And the best part of this dish is that when you have gobbled up all of the ham, that bone makes a FANTASTIC broth for Split Pea Soup.  Happy Holidays everyone!
