Glazed Ham with Dried Cherry Caramelized Onions

Glazed Ham with Dried Cherry Caramelized OnionsThis roasted, boneless ham is glazed with a mixture of honey, mustard and cider vinegar. Serve with sugar snap peas and roasted new potatoes.

Recipe Ingredients:

3 pound cooked boneless ham
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon stone-ground mustard
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
5 medium onions, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced (about 5 cups)
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup dried tart cherries
1/3 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 cup almonds, sliced or slivered and toasted

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C). Place ham on rack in shallow baking pan. Roast 45 minutes to 1 hour or until a meat thermometer registers 140°F (60°C) (about 15 to 18 minutes per pound).
  2. Meanwhile, for glaze, in a small bowl combine 2 tablespoons honey, 1 teaspoon cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon mustard. Brush ham with glaze during the last 5 minutes of baking.
  3. To caramelize onions, cook onions in a covered Dutch oven in hot butter over medium heat for 12 to 15 minutes or until onions are just tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in 1/2 cup dried cherries, 1/3 cup cider vinegar, 2 tablespoons honey and 1/2 teaspoon cardamom. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Stir in toasted almonds. Slice ham; serve with onion mixture.

Makes 10 servings.
