With Easter Sunday April the 8th right around the corner I thought I would share a super easy recipe for your Easter ham. Gets you out of the kitchen fast to enjoy you freinds and family.
My family has always enjoyed it.
1/4 teaspoon groundcloves 1- 11 ounce can Mandarin Oranges in light syrup
Directions Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
If ham has skin, peel it away using a sharp knife and discard, making sure you leave a thin layer of fat on the surface. About 1/8 of a inch will be good.
Score remaining fat with a sharp knife by cutting diagonal lines, about 1/8-inch deep, from 1 side to the other, criss-crossing cuts to form diamond shapes on the surface.
Transfer ham to a foil-lined roasting pan and set aside.
Whisk together honey, mustard and cloves. Brush mixture all over ham. Pour the Mandarin oranges with liquid from can over the ham.
Bake 1 hour (14 minutes per pound), basting every 15 minutes with pan juices.
Let stand 10 to 15 minutes before slicing into thin slices.
If you are using a larger ham,over 8 pounds just double the recipe
