Holiday Feature


Hee-Haw Ham

Makes about 10 servings.


Mary: Oh, well, that's awfully sweet of you, Sam. There's an old friend of yours here. George Bailey.

Sam's voice: You mean old moss-back George?

Mary: Yes old moss-back George.

Sam's voice: Hee-haw! Put him on.


7-pound (3.2-kg) smoked ham
1 cup (240 g) apricot preserves
1/4 cup (60 g) firmly packed dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons cider vinegar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Place ham in a shallow roasting pan, fat side up. Score fat in diamond shapes with a sharp knife. In a small bowl, combine preserves, sugar, mustard, and vinegar. Spread mixture over top of ham. Bake for 1 to 1-1/2 hours, basting every 20 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes. Carve and serve.
