Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Out of cilantro? Chopped Italian parsley is a good substitute.
  • tip 2
    Freeze leftovers in a freezer-friendly container for up to 4 months. To thaw, place the container in the fridge for about 8 hours, or thaw in the microwave.
  • tip 3
    For an easy yet elegant Easter dinner, serve this ham with Spring Rice Pilaf, steamed snap pea pods and an assortment of bakery-bought rolls.
