When it comes to the holiday dinner menu, this recipe is on top of our list. We love to pair it with scalloped potatoes, baked beans, or with some roasted asparagus.We love to glaze it with brown sugar and honey, and then top it with crushed pineapple. It gives the meat a nice savory flavor, with a sweet and zesty tone to it. In addition, by pressure cooking the ham, you are guaranteed to end with moist and flavorful meat.
