Christmas Ham with Maple Glaze~
Is Wonderful made on a Rotisserie~
One of my Favorite Past Christmas Presents~
A Ronco Rotisserie~

My favorite way to prepare a Smoked Ham is on a Rotisserie.
The flavor is absolutely delicious and
the smell is heavenly....smells just like bacon frying.
When I put a ham on the rotisserie,
my three pugs sit in the kitchen and
watch the ham go round and around!
It's hilarious...

Ham made on the rotisserie stays very moist and tender.
The ham has a smoky, caramelized flavor, bacon flavor.
Ham sandwiches are delicious and left-over ham
along with the ham bone can be used to make soup.
A few more favorites you might want to try....
Grind left-over ham using a meat grinder,
use the ground ham to make ham salad or
ham croquettes...delicious!!

You can baste ham with any favorite glaze or sauce you like.
When using a rotisserie the meat bastes in it's own juice
keeping it moist and tender.
This means you really don't even need to baste but
to add flavor to your meat,
use a favorite injectable marinade,

I received my Ronco Rotisserie as a gift over 15 years ago,
my hubby gave it to me as a Christmas present.
One year he had gotten really sick,
a few weeks before Christmas.
He had been up all night "sicker than a dog" with the flu.
While he was up all night sick,
he laid on the couch in the family room and channel surfed...
He told me that after he watched the Ronco infomercial several times,
over a period of several hours,
he decided to order the Ronco Rotisserie for me for Christmas.

The Ronco Rotisserie has turned out to be one of my favorite presents.
I still use my Ronco Rotisserie at least 6 times a year....
Always to make Ham and Leg of Lamb
