Easter is fast approaching so I figured I'd divulge our family favourite Easter recipe.
I know there's probably about a million and one recipes out there right now.
But this one is easy peasy!
And no cloves. My family hates the taste of cloves.
So here goes.
I make sure to de-salt the ham several times before I even begin.
Score the ham in a diamond pattern.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
Put about a 1/4" of water in the bottom of your roasting pan.
But keep an eye on it.
Make sure it doesn't go dry.
Bake for an hour with cover on.
Increase the heat in the oven to 450 degrees.
3 cups lighly packed brown sugar
3 tbsp flour
2 tbsp maple syrup (you can use corn syrup but we like maple syrup better)
3 tsp dry mustard
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
Mix together till it's all blended.
Pour a third on the ham and bake with cover off.
Keep putting some on until all gone.
You should bake the ham for 30 minutes
and the sugar concoction will make a nice crust on the ham.
Take out, carve and serve.
Hubby likes to take the syrup from the bottom of the pan and put it on his potatoes.
Hey, to each his own.
Have a Blessed day!
