My 10 year old son announced that he wants Honey Baked Ham for Christmas. I am appalled at their prices, $36 for a 1/4 ham! Yikes! I would really love to hear about some alternatives, local delies, local, less commercial markets that do a great ham or even a recipe with a said market purchased ham. Any ideas or should I just bite the bullet?
