Sounds great. But I am not sure how to bake the ham "according to directions on the can", since I'd have to get that ham from the butcher... do you have more detailed information for a poor German girl (who is contemplating eating a complete ham all by herself)?

I will definately try this! I usually do the old standby of 1 part brown sugar to 1 part mustard, which always tastes good...but this is definately a nice variation! Thanks!
