ingredients

directions

  • Chop onions and peppers and saute in olive oil until onions are translucent. Add zest of 1 orange and juice from 2. Add apricot preserves, crushed pineapple with juice, sugar,cinnamon, honey, garam masala, allspice, raisins, and cream sherry. Bring to boil then let simmer until thickened/syrupy - about 20-30 minutes.
  • Score ham and stud with clove buds, basting with a portion of the citrus glaze. (depending on ham type - cooking times will vary). For city ham, cook covered at 325 for 40 minutes, basting every 15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and add baby carrots. Pour remaining glaze over ham and carrots and cook for an additional 30 minutes, covered, basting every 15 minutes - be sure to stir carrots as well for even cooking.
  • Remove foil, baste again, and cook until ham has nice caramel like glaze and carrots are tender - about 15 minutes.
  • Let stand for 15 minutes and remove cloves before serving.
  • For added nutrition - halve brussel sprouts and cook with carrots or try parsnip!
  • For stronger flavor - make your own garam masala fresh or toast ground masala before adding to glaze mixture.
