    Directions

    Chuck Hughes' deliciously sweet apple butter and honey glazed ham is so delectable you'll want it for dessert too!
    For the apple butter: In a large stockpot, combine the apples with the apple juice. Cook on low heat until the apples are tender, about 45 minutes. Remove from heat and pass through a fine sieve. Pour the puree back in the stockpot. Bring to a simmer and add the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Cook on low heat for about 1 1/2 hours until it's reduced by half and thickens up, stirring regularly and skimming the surface if necessary. Remove from heat and let cool.

    For the ham: Put the ham, carrot, celery, leek, onion, and garlic in a large stockpot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 2 hours. Drain and place into a roasting pan.

    Preheat the oven at 350 degrees F.

    In a bowl, combine the apple butter, honey, and Dijon mustard. Peel off the skin of the ham and brush it with apple butter mixture. Pour the water in the bottom of the pan. Place in the oven and cook for 1 1/2 hours, making sure to baste it with the sauce every 15 minutes during cooking process. Remove the ham from the grill and let sit for 10 minutes before carving.

    Cook's Note: The apple butter is great on its own, with ice cream, yoghurt or for breakfast.

      Wow! Very impressive!
      We have a very old family holiday ham recipe that my foreign mother always follows. I however yet do not own this recipe & had to host Christmas this year. I was put in charge of making a ham. I took a huge risk and decided on this recipe. After all, nobody has challenged my mothers famous recipe.
      During the process of boiling then baking, I was convinced I did something wrong.
      However, when I went to serve it, I just kept hearing "yummy!" from everyone whom just took their first bites off their plates.
      I myself am not a big meat eater, however; this recipe made the ham taste soo good that I'm eating up all the leftovers.
      Everyone requested doggie bags of the ham.
      Huge hit & success on impressing my mother....
