Pineapple Ginger Ham

You know what happens when you’ve been making your family’s Easter brunch for the better part of a decade? Eventually it becomes such second nature that you don’t even think about it until you realize Easter is two days away, and you should probably at least make a shopping list. Or, that’s what happened to me.

See, our Easter menu has been virtually the same for years. Easter ham. Creme Brulee French Toast. Fruit cup. Something eggy. Asparagus. Repeat. And it’s stayed that way because while Thanksgiving is my holiday to experiment, go crazy and get creative, Easter is deeply rooted in tradition. It’s comforting in a way. Plus, it makes it easier on me.

But there’s something to be said for changing things up a little. Sometimes, you have to break out of the same-old in favor of something new and fabulous.

This year, there will be the usual French toast. Fruit cup. Something eggy. But the ham? It’s getting a little makeover. As much as I love our tradition, there’s a glaze I’ve been working on that is too good to skip.

    Hi! Would it be possible to cook this beautiful ham in a slow cooker? I’ve got an organic honey, spiral cut bone in ham.

    • Hi Susan, I can’t say. I’ve never made a ham that way, and I am not sure how the glaze will work in that type of cooking environment. Let me know if you try it and how it works out!
