The first recipe I have is called: Ham with Apple Raison Sauce
The ingredients for this recipe are listed: One tablespoon of all purpose flour, one large oven roasting bag, four medium tart apples (peeled and chopped), two cups of apple juice, one cup of raisins, 1/2 cup of packed brown sugar, one teaspoon of ground cinnamon, and last but not least, one boneless fully cooked ham, about 6 pounds.
The instructions: Shake flour in the oven roasting bag. Place in an un-greased 12-in. to 9- in. baking pan. Place the apple, apple juice, raisins, brown sugar, and cinnamon in the bag. Then mix well. Place the ham in the bag. Close the bag then cut six 1/2 inch slits in the top of the bag. Then, you need to bake at 350 degrees for two to two 1/4 hours or until the thermometer reads 140 degrees. Serve this with sauce.
My favorite thing about this recipe is the ham. I personally love ham so if you like ham too, you should try this for sure!
The second and last recipe I am going to list is called: Tangerine Glazed Easter Ham with Baby Carrots.
The ingredients for this recipe: One 8-10 pound smoked ham with bone and skin on. You will need Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. One bunch of fresh sage leaves. 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil. One cup of unsalted butter cut into chunks. Two tangerines, sliced thin with the seeds removed. Two cups of tangerine juice. Two cups of light brown sugar. One cup of water. 1/4 teaspoon of whole cloves. 2 cinnamon sticks, and one and a half pound of peeled carrots.
The instructions to this recipe are: Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Then, put the ham in a large roasting pan. Using a sharp knife, cut the ham across the skin about 2 inches apart and 1/2 inch deep. Cut into a diamond pattern, and season the meat with salt and pepper.
Chop about 8 of the sage leaves and put in a bowl. Mix with the oil to make a paste. Then, you will rub the sage oil all over the ham. Bake the ham for two hours. Now for the glaze… Place a saucepan over medium heat. Add the chunks of butter, tangerines, tangerine juice, brown sugar, water, and the spices. Slowly cook the liquid into a syrupy glaze. It should take about 30-40 minutes to cook. After the ham has been cooking for a couple hours, pour the tangerine glaze over it. Add the pieces of fruit too. Place the remaining sage leaves on top and stick the ham back in the oven and continue to cook for one and a half hours. Make sure you baste with juices every 30 minutes.
Scatter baby carrots around the ham and coat the tangerine glaze. After you do that, stick the ham back in the oven to cook for 30 more minutes. At this time, the carrots should be tender and the ham should be dark and crispy. If this is the case, it is ready to be served after cutting.
I enjoy both of these recipes very much and I hope you do too! Hope you enjoyed reading and hopefully you will try to make one of these recipes on Easter! Thanks for reading!
