Chef Alli stopped by 13 News This Morning one last time before the Christmas holiday with another dinner idea!
Maple Pecan Glazed Ham
From the Hy-Vee Seasons Holiday Entertaining Cookbook
1 whole or half spiral-sliced ham
¼ cup chopped, toasted pecans
12 oz. jar orange marmalade
8 oz. pure maple syrup
1 Tbs. unsalted butter
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Remove all packaging material from ham, discarding glaze packet. Line a large baking pan with two large sheets of foil (24 inches for half ham, 36 inches for whole ham), making an X with pieces of foil. Place ham on its side in the center of foil. Wrap ham tightly in foil and place into baking pan. Bake in preheated oven for approx. 2 - 2 ½ hours for half ham and 3 – 3 ¼ hours for whole ham, until internal temperature reaches 140 degrees F., approx. 15-17 minutes per lb of ham.
While ham is baking, prepare glaze. Place orange marmalade and maple syrup into a small sauce pan over medium high heat; whisk in butter until smooth; stir in pecans. In last 15 minutes of baking time for ham, unwrap and baste ham with prepared glaze. Leave ham uncovered for remaining baking time.
