Baked-Ham ~ Super Food Recipes
Homegrown and long a part of America’s history, cherries are truly a North American favorite.
Cherries’ nutrition, unique flavor and naturally functional properties are right on target with today’s new food and beverage trends.
Today's Red Hot Super Fruit
After years in the shadow of other fruits, cherries are emerging as a major super fruit.
A substantial and growing body of scientific research has linked cherries to anti-inflammatory benefits, reduced pain from gout and arthritis and an extensive list of heart health benefits.
Recent studies even suggest they can help reduce post-exercise muscle and joint pain.
Available dried, frozen and in juice and concentrate, cherries contain a unique package of antioxidants and beneficial phytonutrients, including anthocyanins, the pigments that give cherries their bright red color.
Baked-Ham ~ A Cherry Glazed Recipe
We had guests over for dinner and served this recipe recently.
This was absolutely the best ham ever!
This opinion was shared by everyone.
A Vermont spiral ham was used, and I'd suggest using an equally good, quality ham, for this recipe.
10 to 12 servings
1 10-lb. fully cooked whole ham.
1 c. cherry preserves.
1/4 c. red wine vinegar.
2 Tbs. light corn syrup.
1/4 tsp. cinnamon.
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg.
1/4 tsp. ground cloves.
1/3 c. toasted slivered almonds.
3 Tbs. water
Place ham on a rack in a shallow baking pan.
Bake, uncovered, in a 325 degrees F oven about 1-1/2 hours
(or until thermometer registers 140 degrees F).
Meanwhile, in a saucepan combine the cherry preserves, vinegar,
corn syrup, and spices.
Cook and stir until boiling.
Reduce heat; simmer two minutes.
Stir in almonds.
Remove from heat.
Set aside 3/4 cup of the glaze.
About 15 minutes before the ham is done, spoon some of the
remaining glaze over the ham, basting occasionally.
Remove from oven and place on a heated serving platter.
Stir the water into the reserved 3/4-cup glaze, heat and serve
along with the ham.
