Maple Glazed Ham with Raisin Sauce
Ham is typically served for special or festive occasions. Often times served with a “Special Company’s Coming Sauce.” Maple Glazed Ham with Raisin Sauce offers both. A delicious sweet maple glaze and a yummy raisin sauce to serve alongside the ham. When the making raisin sauce, look for golden raisins which cook up plumper than dark raisins, at lest in my humble culinary opinion. Sun Maid Golden Raisins, work great in the sauce recipe.
We prefer to make a ham using our Ronco Rotisserie that we have had for nearly 15 years. Years back, the Ronco Rotisserie was everywhere. You couldn’t turn on the TV without seeing a commercial or info-commercial featuring the wonders of the Ronco Rotisserie…maybe you remember the slogan, “Set it and Forget it.” I don’t think there is a better method to cook a ham, than using a Ronco Rotisserie.
How to Score a Ham
Often times in a recipe, you’ll be told to “score the ham.” What does that actually mean? Here is a simple explanation on “How to Score a Ham.” Use a small sharp knife to diagonally cut 1/4-inch-deep parallel lines in the top of the ham about 1 inch apart. Make another series of cuts at right angles to form diamonds Optional: Using your finger, insert a whole clove in the middle of each of the diamonds.
You may find it easier to pierce the meat first with the point of a skewer and then insert the clove. Scoring Ham adds an old-fashioned, decorative touch to baked ham by scoring the top, then sometimes studding it with cloves. Another decorative way to serve ham is to score the ham first with a diamond pattern, cover the ham with pineapple slices and cherries. Scoring also allows any glaze to penetrate the meat.
