Finding a cheap holiday ham is like a sport

Featured Recipe: Marmalade-Glazed Ham
We make a sport out of seeing how little we can pay per pound for our holiday ham. The delectability of a ham does not depend on paying a lot of money for it. A very cheap ham tastes just as wonderful as a very expensive one. That’s especially true if you bake the ham with our marvelous marmalade glaze. (Click here for the recipe.)
We’re so partial to our glaze that we prefer to buy an unglazed ham, which costs a fraction of one already-sliced and glazed. Slicing a ham just isn’t that difficult. (We’ve even been known to wash the glaze off a spiral-sliced ham we bought at a rock-bottom sale in order to use our glaze instead!)
What's the cheapest price per pound you've ever found for a ham?

What you're saying..
Oh my goodness! How did I miss Kitchen Scoop until today? Have had Desperation Dinners for years -- we spend 6 weeks in Florida every winter and it is the only cookbook I take with me. Brunswick Stew is fabulous and tastes like it cooked for hours! Flake chicken is a favorite and I'm saving the black bean soup recipe forever!
Growing up in eastern NC, I know all about shelling butter beans and field peas and aren't they good in the winter?! Keep the good stuff going and I'll keep reading!
