As you can see this blog now has the feel of the coming holidays! To ramp up my holidays specials, let's start with making your very own low budgeted holiday ham.
Why buy those expensive hams from your local groceries when you can make your own honey glazed ham at home and you can also do business by selling your homemade holiday ham to your officemates, friends, or neighbors. Great way to generate additional income, right?
Well, here is the recipe. It's very simple and the ingredients are easy to find. Happy cooking!
• 1 fully cooked ham
• 1/2 c. packed brown sugar
• 2-3 T. honey
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Score top of ham with sharp knife, in a crisscross pattern. Cuts should be about a 1/2-inch deep.
2. Place ham on a rack in a shallow baking pan (or just straight in the pan if you don't have a rack) and cook for about 20 minutes per pound.
3. In a separate bowl, mix sugar and honey into a paste and brush on the top and sides of ham during the last hour of baking, repeating every 20 minutes.
4. Served warm or cold.
Note: Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 1 week. If you have a lot of ham leftover you might want to freeze several large slices in a freezer bag or container (I like to put up at least one serving large enough to feed our family a nice dinner). Just be sure to add a spoonful of the ham juices to the freezer bag and it will help them stay moist when reheating later.
