Spiced Holiday Ham
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 2 hours 10 min.
This is a really nice glaze, and the cloves add the perfect amount of spice. The currant jelly adds just the perfect sweet/sour flavor to the salty ham. I can’t wait to make this again
Making recipe for Easter Dinner - looking at pic, noticed WAY more than 15 cloves in that ham!Used the 15 suggested in recipe - cloves are strong so 15 sounds about right - just wondering why test kitchen seemed to use so many - taste or photogenic reasons???
PS: I also didn't bake the ham as long as the recipe calls for - hams are fully cooked and really only need heating up, otherwise they're too dry for me. Today's pork is very lean and dries out quickly. So I cooked it for only 1 hour before glazing it.
Not only is this recipe easy, but the glaze is tasty and bakes up to a beautiful color! When my youngest son came in for Sunday dinner, his eyes popped out and he said, "That looks delicious!" And it was, too. I used 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard instead of the ground, as I thought it would mix better with the rest of the glaze ingredients.
