Perfect for Easter—or any day!
Preheat oven to 325ºF. Remove ham from packaging and rinse ham under running water.
In a deep roasting pan, put ham cut side down in the center. Pour apple juice into the pan. Cover pan tightly with foil. Bake for approximately 3 hours (about 20 minutes per pound).
After the ham is done cooking, remove pan from oven. Carefully remove foil (be sure to keep your face out of the way as steam will be escaping as you remove the foil). Allow ham to cool slightly. Turn oven heat up to 375ºF.
In a small bowl combine brown sugar and honey. Add about 2 to 3 tablespoons of apple juice drippings from the pan. Stir well and set aside.
Using a knife, cut visible fat and rind from the ham. Score the outside of the ham in a diamond pattern (or straight lines). Insert whole cloves into cut lines. I used about 20 whole cloves. Use as many or few as you’d like. Brush brown sugar mixture over ham.
Return ham to oven, uncovered, and bake an additional 20 minutes, or until sugar has hardened. Remove from oven. Transfer ham to a large platter and cool at least 20 minutes.
Discard the whole cloves. Cut ham into slices. Serve warm or at room temperature. Refrigerate leftovers up to 1 week or freeze leftover ham up to 3 months.
I can honestly say this fresh pasta recipe works every time. It rolls out beautifully, tastes great, doesn’t blow up in the water, doesn’t break when you make ravioli and the dough can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator!
I make pasta a lot, mostly ravioli. I make a bunch and freeze them and it makes getting dinner on the table so easy! Feel free to substitute spinach, basil, chard or kale … but ramps are in season!
