The Easter Ham!

There are many festive sides you can make for an epic Easter feast. Spring is finally here, which means it’s time to dig up those great spring recipes you’ve been waiting for all winter long. The possibilities are practically endless with all the amazing spring produce. For the main event, however, there’s one obvious choice: a proper Easter ham. There aren’t many days of the year that we can find a good reason to cook an entire leg of ham, so when that opportunity presents itself we think it wise to jump on it.

Baked Ham with Brown Sugar Ham Glaze – an easy baked ham for any occasion with a unique and flavorful brandy brown sugar ham glaze!

Baked ham with brown sugar glaze is one of those dishes that has a reputation for being hard or complicated to make, but nothing could be further from the truth.

I’m not sure who first started spreading these nasty rumors… I have a feeling part of the responsibility goes to marketers at certain national pre-baked ham shops, but who’s to say. A good baked ham needs nothing more than a sweet flavorful glaze (or rub) and some time in the oven. I like to start with a simple brown sugar ham glaze, then spruce it up with a whole lot of flavor.

One of my favorite brown sugar ham glaze recipes combines brown sugar with whole grain mustard, brandy, cumin, and coriander. The sweet boozy note of the brandy enhances the brown sugar and complements the spicy twang of the mustard. It’s a heavenly blend to rub over the baked ham.
