Emergency Ham Recipe


I'm live-tweeting my Thanksgiving prep over on Twitter +Stacey Ballis , and taking questions...

So. Freaking. Delicious
My tweep Cris asked for a ham recipe, and here is my fave.  Perfect for Thanksgiving if you need a second protein, but also delish for Xmas or Easter.

Glazed Ham

Remove the skin from your smoked ham, leaving about ¼ to ½ inch of fat.  Score the fat in a diamond pattern, trying not to cut into the meat.   Preheat oven to 350, and line a baking pan with foil or use a disposable foil pan.  Place 1 c of water in the bottom of the pan.

In a food processor, put:

6 garlic cloves
8 oz mango chutney
1 oz ginger jam (if you can’t find it, mix 1 T fresh grated ginger into 2 T orange marmalade or apricot jam)
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1 cup packed light brown sugar
Zest of one orange
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
¼ t fresh grated mace (you can sub nutmeg)
pinch red pepper flakes (opt.)

Pulse till well mixed. 

Coat the ham with the glaze and bake until the meat is heated through.

Come join me over on Twitter, its a three day prep party!

Yours in Good Taste,
