Don't risk having a boring, predictable ham at your Easter celebration! You won't believe how easy it is to whip up a homemade glaze that tastes way better than anything you'll find at the store.

SHOW TRANSCRIPT

A ho-hum ham on Easter? Not on our watch. I'm gonna show you how to trick out your ham with a crazy-easy glaze. All you need are just three ingredients. Red pepper jelly, coffee and salt. Trust me, I ate a ton of ham when we tested this recipe. First you're gonna use one and one-fourths cup of red pepper jelly. Next you're going to put in a half cup of strong brewed coffee and then add a half teaspoon of salt. Now stir that together until it's just combined. This glaze is super easy. You can control the salt levels, and it's way better than what you can get at the grocery store. It's perfectly sweet, tangy and salty all at the same time. [INAUDIBLE] Next, we're gonna put it on the ham and it's an eight to nine pound spiral-cut ham that you get at the grocery store. We're gonna put a half cup of the glaze on right now and then, once we put it in the oven, we'll baste it every 30 minutes with the remaining glaze. We decided to make these glazes because we were all really tired of having boring, predictable hams at our family dinners for Easter. And these really jazz it up. We'll cook this at 350 degrees for two to three hours. Doesn't this look incredible? And it was so easy to do. What I love about glazes is how many different flavor combinations you can do. Like this coffee and pepper jelly glaze is sweet and spicy at the same time, but if you wanted to do our pineapple prosecco glaze. With Prosecco and pineapple preserves with a little bit of salt it has more of a citrus flavor. Or you can even do our cola Dijon brown sugar glaze. It's kind of tangy from the mustard but it's still sweet from the cola. For more great recipes go to southernliving.com. [MUSIC]
