Recipe: EASTER WEEK: BROWN SUGAR AND SPICE-CRUSTED HAM

The big Easter meal will be served on Sunday, so this week, we'll offer some recipe ideas for making it special. This one comes from Cooking Light magazine.

INGREDIENTS

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground coriander

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3/4 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

1 (5-pound) bone-in 33 percent-less-sodium smoked, fully cooked ham half

Cooking spray

1/4 cup honey

1 tablespoon fresh orange juice

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine first 6 ingredients. Trim fat and rind from ham. Rub ham evenly with sugar mixture. Place ham on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Cover loosely with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Combine honey and juice in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Remove foil from ham; brush honey mixture over ham. Bake, uncovered, 30 minutes or until a thermometer registers 140 degrees. Transfer ham to a platter; let stand 15 minutes before slicing.
