    This recipe is great -- I just can't believe all the negative comments. I see recipes all the time that aren't for me and I just delete the email -- I don't take the time to leave nasty comments. For a lighter variation, try 1/2 cup of brown sugar and a can of ginger ale. Just as yummy. - 11/17/08

    Because of health concerns with corn syrup, I use pineapple juice - it gives a nice flavour to the ham. - 5/20/09

    Very good. To lighten it on sugar calories, and sodium all you have to do is buy low sodium ham, leave out the corn syrup and the butter. Ham makes its own juices which when mixed with the honey and spices make a perfectly good coating you don't even need 2 cups of honey. - 5/20/09

    I am kind of surprised about those who rated and hadn't even tried the recipe. Also, if you change so many ingredients, just post your own recipe!! I thought this recipe was very good and I think I will try putting the "sauce" in a squirt bottle and try that technique for basting. I love that!! - 7/30/09

    Try ham with pineapple slices toothpicked to it. Draws out a lot of the salt (you can taste it in the pineapple slices and ham is less salty). When it' s nearly done take the honey bottle squirt it over the ham. Cook for 15-20 minutes,turn it over, squirt again cook 15 minutes more. Tasty. - 12/11/07
