Knock Off for Honey Baked Ham
CATEGORIES
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 spiral sliced ham-half
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • dash of ground ginger
  • dasy of ground allspice
DIRECTIONS
  1. Mix the spices and sugar together in a bowl. Lay down a couple of sheets of waxed paper onto a flat surface, pour the sugar mixture onto the waxed paper and spread it around evenly. Remove the ham from the packaging and roll it over the sugar mixture so it is welll coated. Do not coat the flat end of the ham, just the outer surface which is sliced. Turn the ham onto it's flat end on a plate. Use a blow torch -yes a real blow torch, with a medium sized flame to carmelize the sugar. Wave the torch over the sugar with rapid movement, so that the sugar bubbles and browns, but does not burn. Spin the plate so that you can torch the entire surface of the ham. Repeat the coating and carmelizing process until the ham has been well-glazed. Don't expect to use all of the sugar mixture. You may serve the ham cold or reheat it in the oven if desired.
  2. Make sure the house is well ventilated while using the blow torch!
