Prepare these candied vegetables a day ahead and chill them; then when the ham's finished baking, reheat the vegetables just before serving.

I cannot believe no one has rated this recipe...it is devine! I have given the recipe out to numerous people by request since it was in a "Christmas Southern Living" several years ago. I make it exactly as directed and it turns out wonderful. I may attempt making it a day ahead this year and reheating. The smell is fabulous...it'll put you in the Christmas spirit!
