If you’ve been following Linda and I for a while now, you know that I am gifted several hams by my hubby’s clients every year. I have had to make ham in so many ways my brain hurts…but this is my favorite! I actually served this dish at a Small Plate Dinner on an evening we had guests. It was the perfect 4 or 5 bites that left you wanting more. Serving dishes on little 4″x 4″ plates is a fun way to make the ordinary exciting, (and to use your leftovers)! Your guests will think you spent days preparing… and in point of fact, you did!!! It was fun, delicious and enjoyed by all…
Honey, Mustard & Pepper Glazed Ham
1 7 to 8 pound ham
1/2 cup creamed honey
1/2 cup Honey Dijon mustard
1 Tbs black pepper
Preheat oven to 325 °F. Mix together the honey, mustard and pepper and set aside. Cook ham covered for 1 hour then remove from oven. Completely cover the ham all over with honey, mustard and pepper mix and return to oven uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the ham from the pan to a cutting board with a moat… and allow the ham to rest 15 minutes before slicing. Next add 3 tablespoons of flour and 1 1/2 cups of water to the oven pan with the ham drippings and make a gravy over low heat.
1 firm apple diced
1/2 sweet onion diced
1/4 cup white wine
pinch of salt
In a small sauce pan add 2 tablespoons of butter, diced onions and a pinch on salt. Cook until the onions are tender. Add the diced apples and wine; cook an additional 10 to 15 minutes depending on how tender you want your apples to be.
Slice the ham and serve it with the Whipped Sweet Potato Delight (coming soon), ham gravy and Apple Chutney. Delicious!
