Make Our Holiday Ham the Star of Your Easter Dinner!

 

With the perfect combination of smoky, salty and sweet, gourmet ham is a fantastic addition to your spring feast. Since it works so well with a variety of flavors, customizing your ham with sauces and sides to suit your tastes couldn’t be easier. Make our Hickory Farms’ Spiral Sliced HoneyGold Ham the true star of the show with these simple tips.

A slightly sweet glaze is the perfect way to accentuate the natural sweetness of the Ham. For a delicious and unique sweet and savory combination, try topping your ham with a Cherries Jubilee – Black Pepper Glaze. Simply mix together black cherry preserves, chicken stock, a dash of brandy, a splash of cider vinegar and a bit of ground pepper. Heat the mixture in a saucepan until reduced, and pour over your ham before warming.

If you’re looking for a main dish that’s just a little spicy, try basting your gourmet ham with a fiery Fresh Peach Chutney. Simply cook down fresh peaches with sweet onion, brown sugar, a bit of balsamic vinegar and a touch of spicy Jamaican jerk seasoning.

Once you’ve decided on the sauce for your ham, it’s time to round out your meal with sides that will perfectly complement your delicious main dish. Ham and apples pair wonderfully together, making Apple-Pear Salad a perfect side dish. Just toss together apples, pears, lettuce, Swiss cheese, nuts from Our Finest Mixed Nuts Gift Tin and dried cranberries. Afterwards, add some lemon-poppy seed dressing.
