Except that they are both DELICIOUS!
Just before Thanksgiving I was given a beautiful ham compliments of Zaycon Foods.
I was asked to give a review.
Well, that is easy because I have had their ham before and it is good.
I should have taken a picture before we cut it in to thirds.
These two chunks went in to the freezer.
It's Applewood smoked and excellent quality.
I like it because it's not a pressed, fused, yucky texture.
We decided to be all fancy schmancy with it.
This is only 1/3!
There was a lot of turkey leftovers.
There was no ham leftovers.
We got the recipe from one of my favorite ER docs.
Dr. Hammar's Ham Recipe
Place fat side up on a cookie sheet
Cross score ham about 1" width
At each intersection of scoring, place a whole clove
Cover with a can of pineapple slices. (save the juice)
Place in roaster.
Juice from pineapple
1 jar of Smuckers apricot pineapple jam
3/4 C brown sugar
generous tablespoon of dry mustard.
SLOW roast at about 180 degrees for 5-6 hours.
Baste with drippings and serve hot.
We were NOT disappointed.
If you get a chance to order ham from Zaycon DO IT!
(I'm also a huge fan of their boneless skinless chicken breasts too!)
Now for the chocolate.
It's that time of year.
the time of year when you are really bored and don't have anything else to do with your time...time of year.
Except make English Toffee.
And dip homemade caramels.
I've only gotten started.
I love doing it.
So I NEED to have a giveaway.
