TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 medium tangerines
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 4 slices fully cooked ham, (1 pound)

Directions

  • 1. Squeeze juice from six tangerines; strain pulp. Cut a thin slice off the bottom and top of the remaining tangerines. Place each tangerine cut side down on a cutting board. With a sharp knife, remove peel and white pith from fruit. Holding fruit over a bowl, slice between the membrane of each section and the fruit until the knife reaches the center; remove sections; set aside.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and tangerine juice until smooth; stir in the honey, ginger and cloves.
  • 3. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, brown ham slices on both sides; remove and keep warm. Stir tangerine juice mixture and add to the skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the tangerine segments; heat through. Serve with the ham. Yield: 4 servings.
