Bake a ham and brush on a delicious glaze made with fresh orange juice, low sugar apricot preserves and a bottle of malta. This healthy dish will feed a crowd.
“I’m dreaming of a white Christmas just like the ones I use to know.” I’m ready for “Chestnuts roasting on an open fire” and “Sugar plums dancing in my head”. It is time to bring on the Christmas music, movies, cookies and a jolly old-time. Orange Apricot Malta Ham is so nice and easy it gives you the time for all those wonderful Christmas time things. You can stick it in the oven, baste it and let it cook. Your house will smell A-mazing.
I love to make a big ham. Not only will it feed a lot of people but you have the bone for soup and probably some leftovers for souffles or ham sandwiches. It is perfect for Christmas Day. You can stick the ham in the oven then go enjoy time with your family and friends and sneak away to baste it from time to time. Easy peasy. The ham will caramelize beautifully with the basting liquid and have a beautifully scented crust of orange and apricot with a little bit of malt from the malta. Malta is a carbonated malt soda common in South America. It brings sweetness and a touch of malt. If you cannot find an orange apricot marmalade, go ahead and use half orange and half apricot preserves.
So now that we have Christmas dinner figured out, let’s bring on the Christmas music and enjoy time with our families. Let’s sit by the fire drinking hot toddy’s or hot apple cider. Lets sing Christmas Carols and jingle all the way home.
