DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the butter, honey, lime juice and nutmeg in a small saucepan.
  • Heat and stir until well blended.
  • Slash the outer layer of fat on the ham at 2" intervals.
  • Peel the cantaloupe, de-seed it and cut into 6 wedges.
  • Peel the pineapple and cut it into 6 slices 3/4" thick.
  • Do not core the pineapple as it will make it easier to handle on the grill.
  • Brush both sides of the ham with the basting sauce and put on a medium hot grill (about 6" above the coals).
  • Cook for 16-20 minutes, turning and basting frequently.
  • About 8 minutes before the ham is done, baste the fruit with the sauce and place it on the grill.
  • Basting often, cook the fruit until it's well glazed and lightly brown on all sides.
  • To serve, place the ham and fruit on a platter and cut thin slices across the grain of the ham.
