Best Ham Recipes for Anytime of the Year!
Best Ham Recipes for Anytime of the Year! Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter- or just a Tuesday- ham is a versatile meat that most everyone loves. Not to mention how easy it is to prepare. Today I am sharing a few of my favorite ways to prepare this family favorite.
I have made ham several different ways over the years. Spiral sliced, shank portion, sugar cured, you name it- I have made it. My kids like it and there are always plenty of leftovers for later. Don’t be afraid of the large size, you may be looking at hams with a bone which accounts for a lot of the weight. I tend to buy spiral sliced, shank portion hams. Then I can save the ham bone to make Hurst’s 15 Bean Soup with Leftover Ham in a Slow Cooker later!
Ham is pre-cooked so a lot of the work is done for you. Forgo the little glaze packets that come with the ham and try one of these easy BEST ham recipes! You can make all of these recipes in the oven AND slow cooker. Be sure to heat to an internal temperature of 140 degrees in the thickest area.
My BEST Ham Recipes:
Holiday Ham with Apricot Glaze from Southern Living Magazine– with a slightly sweet glaze made from grainy mustard, apricot preserves, brown sugar and BOURBON- this ham is classy enough for your holiday table.
