Sweet-Hot Plum-Glazed Ham Recipe

After a fun day of egg hunts and decorating treat your family and friends to some delicious sweet- hot plum glazed ham. Make this easy and tasty recipe at your own Cambridge outdoor kitchen!

• 1 cup plum preserves
• 1/2 cup orange juice
• 2 tablespoons lime juice
• 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
• 1 tablespoon honey
• 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
• 1/2 teaspoons dried crushed red pepper
• 1 (7-lb) smoked fully cooked, bone-in ham
• Garnishes: pineapple, kiwifruit, green onions, black sesame seeds

1. Stir together first 7 ingredients in a saucepan over medium-high heat; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, stirring constantly, 5 minutes or until preserves are melted and mixture is blended. Pour half of plum preserve mixture into a microwave-safe bowl.

2. Trim excess fat on ham to 1/8-inch thickness. If desired, make long, shallow cuts (about 1/16-inch deep) over entire ham, forming diamond patterns. Place ham on a wire rack in an aluminum foil-lined roasting pan. Brush ham with a portion of plum preserve mixture in saucepan.

3. Bake ham, uncovered, at 350° on lower oven rack 1 hour and 30 minutes, basting with remaining plum preserve mixture in saucepan every 30 minutes. Loosely cover with aluminum foil and bake 1 hour and 45 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest portion registers 140°, basting every 30 minutes. Let ham stand 15 minutes before slicing. Garnish, if desired.

4. Microwave plum preserve mixture in bowl at HIGH 1 minute or until thoroughly heated. Serve ham with warm mixture.
