I received many compliments on the ham. This is really good. My house smelled wonderful. I wish I would have put the sliced apples in towards the last hour of cooking.

This is a great & easy recipe. I have made this two Chrismases in a row; the kids requested it. I gave this recipe to my brother & he made it for Thanksgiving and Christmas of the same year. I substituted water for the apple cider and it was still flavorful.
