Healthy Easter Ham Recipe

For many of us, it’s just not Easter dinner without ham.

But we all know that ham isn’t the healthiest of meats. While it is packed with protein and vitamins/minerals, it’s also high in fat and sodium

“But it’s Easter,” you say. “Must have ham for Easter dinner!”

We understand. Believe us, we do.

So take a look below for a great healthy recipe for your Easter ham.

The first place to start is with the ham itself. Look for an extra lean version. Look for a 10-pound boneless ham (this recipe will yield 30 servings, so you should have lots of ham left over for sandwiches!)

This Easter ham recipe yields 30 servings. You’ll have plenty left over for some delicious ham sandwiches!

Additional ingredients:

  • A 32-ounce can of pineapple juice
  • Two teaspoons of ground cloves
  • Two teaspoons of cinnamon
  • Two or three cups of brown sugar (to taste)

To prepare:

  • Put all ingredients except the ham in a roaster pan and stir well until the sugar dissolves completely.
  • Trim the ham’s outer skin. Take the knife and cut a slit on the bottom, top and sides of the ham.
  • Place the ham in the mixture of juice and sugar, cover and bake at 350 degrees F for at least two hours.
  • Be sure to baste well every 30 minutes until the ham is done.
  • Slice the ham soon after it’s cooked and place the slices in the refrigerator.
  • When you’re ready to eat, reheat the oven to 350 degrees F and place the ham in the roaster with its juice.

A single serving is about four ounces.

Are you thinking that spring is a great time to renew your exercise regime? If so, and if you haven’t worked out in several weeks or a few months, it’s wise to visit a physician for a checkup.
