All Year Long, Easter, This Week

Ginger Mustard Glazed Ham with Apples

This is a twist on the classic mustard glaze. I’m working with a small ham for this recipe, so if you are working with something larger, please adjust the ratios and cooking time.

What you need:

  • 2 1/2 lbs smoked ham
  • 1/4 cup ginger mustard or dijon with a dash of dried ginger mixed in
  • Dash of apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey or apple/orange preserves
  • Pepper
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 – 3 apples
  • Foil

Burnt sugar is no joke, this is one instant where I insist on using foil.

Preheat oven to 250° F.

Mix the mustard, vinegar, honey or preserves, pepper, and brown sugar together. Lather the ham with the glaze. Cut apples in half and scoop out the center cores. Arrange around the ham on foil, then cover the ham and apples in foil.

Bake for about an hour until ham’s internal temperature is 150° F. Let rest for 10 minutes and cut off netting (if your ham has it) before slicing and serving. Serve the apple halves alongside the ham!

Happy Easter!
