Sweet and Spicy baked ham

Monday, March 22, 2010

If you're planning on making a ham for Easter and are feeling a little adventurous, you'll love this recipe! It has just the right amount of sweetness to balance the spicy :)

What you'll need:
  • 1 (5 lb) fully cooked ham
  • 12 cloves
  • 2 cups salsa
  • 1 (16oz) can crushed pineapple with juice
  • 1/4 cup honey

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Slice (score) ham in a criss-cross pattern. Place cloves into cuts around the ham. Mix together remaining ingredients. Place ham in a deep baking dish lined with aluminum foil. Top with pineapple/salsa mixture. Bake uncovered for 1 1/2 - 2 hours, spooning sauce from bottom of pan and pouring back over the ham about every half an hour. If ham is getting too dark cover with foil. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. After slicing top with any remaining sauce from pan and serve. Feeds 6 - 8.


Cost:
ham - $6.81
cloves – $1.12
salsa - $2.08
crushed pineapple – $1.09
honey - $1.12
Total - $10.27

I love pineapple and ham, hard to beat that combination. Cherries just add to the fun.
