Apricot Sweet Baked Ham

 

The secret to a great baked ham is in the glaze. Pineapples and apricot add a sweetness that complements the salty flavor of the ham.

 

SERVES: 8

 

INGREDIENTS:

5 pound pre-cooked ham

1/2 cup cloves

1 can (20 oz.) sliced pineapple (rings)

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon cornstarch 1

can (20 oz.) apricot juice

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

 

Rinse the ham with cold water then pat dry with a paper towel. Using a sharp knife make surface cuts in the shape of a 2-inch X all over the ham. Place 1 clove in the intersection of each X.

 

Place individual rings of pineapple on the ham, using more cloves to secure the pineapple.

 

Place the ham in a large roaster pan. Cover the pan, place in the oven, and bake for 1 1/2 hours at 350F degrees.

 

In a saucepan, over medium heat, add the sugar, cornstarch and apricot juice. Stir constantly until the glaze thickens but don’t let it boil.

 

Uncover the ham and pour the apricot syrup on top. Cook for 30 minutes more, occasionally basting with the syrup to form a sweet glaze.

 

Prepare the ham for serving by removing the pineapples and the cloves. Discard the cloves. Serve each slice of ham with 1 pineapple ring and some glaze.
