Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Not sure what size ham to buy? Keep in mind that 1 pound of bone-in ham is enough for 2 servings.
  • tip 2
    A wide variety of dried fruits are now available at the supermarket. You could use dried blueberries, cherries or cranberries in place of the currants.
