Glazed Easter ham
8-10-pound fully-cooked boneless ham
1/2 cup apricot preserves
1/2 cup cherry preserves
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup snipped fresh mint
1 tablespoon shredded lemon peel
2 cloves garlic, minced
Place ham on rack in roasting pan.
Make glaze: In a bowl stir together apricot preserves, cherry preserves, and lemon juice. Makes 1 cup glaze.
Make lemon sprinkle: In a separate bowl, combine mint, lemon peel, and garlic.
Insert an oven-going meat thermometer into center. Bake in 325 degrees F. oven for 2 hours 15 minutes to 2 hours 45 minutes, or until thermometer registers 140 degrees F. Brush ham with glaze during last 20 to 30 minutes. Serve with Mint and Lemon Sprinkle. Makes 10 to 12 (3-ounce) servings plus leftovers.
Test Kitchen Tip: If your ham weighs more than 8 pounds, cover it loosely with foil during the first 1 hour of roasting. This will prevent it from drying out.
