Happy New Year!
We’re kicking off 2017 with a fine way to wrangle a spiral sliced ham; thanks to Snoop Dogg on Martha and Snoop Dogg’s Potluck Dinner Party on VH1.
After watching Snoop Dogg do this pineapple and honey glaze, I thought it’d be just the thing for our Christmas dinner and, since I had a coupon, I thought we might as well go all out and get the Honey Baked ham Snoop specified.
Pricy (even with my coupon) but nice. Still, I am wondering if next time, I should just go ahead and use a spiral ham from the market. This glaze is just that good.
The only thing I couldn’t do is use Mr. Dogg’s specified Reo Seasoning; so I opted to use seasoned salt.
Worked a treat.
•1 spiral sliced ham (mine was 16 lb)
•3 cups pineapple juice
•2 cups honey
•1/2 cup brown sugar
•2 tbsp Seasoned Salt*
•1/4 cup milk
*Did you know you can make your own seasoned salt, and customize it to your tastes and preferences? Here’s my recipe.
Heat oven to 300º and line a baking pan with foil and parchment paper.
Whisk the pineapple juice together with the honey, brown sugar, seasoned salt, and milk until nicely blended.
Pour one cup of the marinade over the ham and pop into the oven.
Bake for two hours, basting with more of the marinade every 30 minutes.
Transfer to a platter and allow to rest for 20 minutes before serving.
While my ham was resting, I ladled some of the pan juices into a small pot, brought it to a boil over high heat, and cooked until I had a pretty tasty reduced sauce for the ham and mashed potatoes.
This is officially my new favorite way to make ham. Give it a try, and I think it’ll be yours, too.
