Baked Ham with Apricot Brandy Glaze Recipe
PREP: 15 minutes
COOK: 2 hours
READY IN: 2.25 minutes
Container: small sauce pan
Serving Description: Number of servings is determined by the size of the ham.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup apricot preserves
  • 3 tablespoons brandy (not brandy flavoring)
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard (or spicy brown mustard for more flavor)
  • 1 ham of choice
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

  • While ham is roasting, puree preserves in a blender.
  • In a sauce pan, whisk orange juice, apricot preserves, brown sugar and corn starch until well combined. Cook over medium low heat until slightly thickened, stirring frequently. Add mustard and brandy, whisk. Continue cooking over low heat 1 to 2 additional minutes.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Spread glaze on ham during the last 30 minutes of baking. Reapply during the last 15 minutes if desired.
  • Serve extra glaze along side of ham.

Change Servings
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 4 cups romaine lettuce - torn pieces
  • 4 cups iceberg lettuce - torn pieces
  • 1 can mandarin oranges - 11 oz. can
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons minced parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Directions
  • Add the two tablespoons of sugar to a small saucepan and shake the pan to get the sugar to cover the bottom evenly.
  • Cook the sugar over low heat just until melted, approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Do not stir the sugar as it cooks. Watch carefully because the sugar will burn quickly. When just about all the sugar has melted, lift the pan off the heat and allow the sugar to finish melting.
  • As soon as the sugar has melted pour the sliced almonds into the saucepan. Stir them quickly to coat with the melted sugar. The sugar will harden quickly.
  • Once the almonds are coated turn them out onto a piece of waxed paper and break the clumps of almonds into pieces. Be careful because the melted sugar is hot.
  • Break the two types of lettuce into bite size pieces and place in a large bowl.
  • Add the oranges, celery, and almonds to the lettuce and toss together.
  • Combine the oil, vinegar, two tablespoons of sugar, parsley, salt, and pepper in a separate bowl. Whisk until well mixed.
  • Just before you are ready to serve, pour half the dressing over the salad ingredients and toss them to mix together. Add about half of the remaining dressing and toss the salad again.
  • If you feel there is enough dressing on the salad at that point, do not add the remaining dressing. If not, add more dressing until the salad is coated as desired.
  • Pour the salad into a large serving bowl and serve immediately.
