Nothing says Easter like ham, right?
So I present to you Chef Michael’s Easter Ham with an Orange Balsamic Glaze + Fresh Rosemary:
-Juice + zest of 2 Valencia Oranges (any orange will do)
-2/3 of a cup of Balsamic Vinegar
-1/8 tsp Kosher Salt
-1/8 tsp Fresh Cracked Black Pepper
-1 Fresh Sprig of Rosemary (about 2” in length)
-1 tsp sugar or honey
-Mix all ingredients together in a small saucepan over medium to medium-low heat.
-Bring to a simmer and let reduce, stirring occasionally until the mixture becomes slightly thickened and syrup like (it will thicken more as it cools).
-Once thickened, generously brush the Farmer John Ham with the glaze and cook the ham per the instructions on the package. Baste the ham with the glaze every 20 minutes until a nice caramelized crust is formed.
-Use any leftover glaze to pour over ham just before serving.
Although I didn’t really participate in the preparation of this ham – I did observe the preparation + I 100% ate it.
This recipe is easy + delicious.
