Easter Honey Glazed Ham

Since Easter is just around the corner, we decided to feature a local ham with a delicious brushed-on glaze in last night's cooking class last in our Belleville Country Store

While the ham was warming in the oven, we prepared the glaze and set it aside to cool. As it cools, the glaze thickens making it the perfect consistency to brush on the ham during the last stages of baking. Tangy Dijon mustard perfectly balances sweet fruit juices and honey, making this a delicious way to add a burst of flavor to Eckert's juicy, slightly-salty ham. 

Eckert's Meat Department proudly sells  high-quality, local, bone-in half and whole hams. As we baked the ham, less than a teaspoon of juices escaped into the pan. This means the juices remained in the ham resulting in a juicy and tender finished product.

Keep this recipe at the top of your collection for holiday gatherings! We are sure your guests will love it as much as our classroom guests did -

they were all asking for seconds!!
