This wonderfully delicious, glazed ham is a sure-fire winner! It's easy to make and a lot more cost-effective than the store-bought variety. The leftovers make excellent ham sandwiches as well ... that is, if there are any leftovers.
This recipe calls for Aunt Sally's Sugar and Spice Pralines, which combine Louisiana's own Tabasco sauce with their creamy, melt-in-your-mouth pralines, giving you an explosion of authentic New Orleans flavor.
- 1 spiral sliced, smoked ham (7lbs)
- 1/2 cup of apple juice
- 1/2 cup of pear nectar
- 1 cup of Aunt Sally's Sugar and Spice Pralines, chopped in a blender
- 1/2 cup of honey
- 1/4 cup of brown sugar
- You'll also need a meat thermometer.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- In a small bowl, mix the apple juice and pear nectar; this is your basting sauce.
- Place the ham in a large baking dish with the cut side down and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes (or 15 minutes per pound) frequently basting with the basting sauce.
- In a medium-sized bowl, mix the chopped pralines, honey and brown sugar.
- Once your ham is finished being basted, remove it from the oven and coat the ham with the praline mixture and bake for another hour-to-hour and a half, or until the internal temperature reaches 104 degrees and the outside has caramelized to a beautiful crust.
- Serve immediately. We hope you enjoy this delicious recipe!
