How to Make a Ham Glaze in Your Blender
Preparing for Easter can be quite the event. Whether it's assembling Easter baskets, setting up for an egg hunt or spending the whole day cooking before your guests arrive, every second counts. Use your blender to create a flavor-filled sweet ham glaze that's easy to make and tastes like it took hours.
Blender Ham Glaze Recipe
Many hams are only as good as their glazes. So try to wow your family and friends this year with a strong, sweet and tasty glaze that'll have everyone coming back for seconds. Here's what you'll need to get started:
- 1/4 cup honey
- 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 3 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
- 1 splash of Worcestershire sauce.
Start by adding the apple cider vinegar and butter to your blender jar. Then, on a low speed, pour in one ingredient after the next, allowing for them to combine completely. You'll be left with a rich glaze that's completely homogenous. The blender helps eliminate human error from the mixing process and gets the honey and mustard - which are difficult to mix - spread throughout the entire glaze.
Pour your glaze out of your blender and into a bowl. You can apply it directly to the ham or reduce the glaze on the stovetop first for a thicker mix.
Drizzle about one-fourth of the glaze over your scored and prepared ham with a spoon and add finishing touches with a basting brush. Place your ham in the oven for the desired amount of time based on its size and weight.
Baste your ham with the glaze three to four times while it's cooking. Once the ham is thoroughly cooked, feel free to add one last layer of glaze and broil it to caramelize the sugar and give it that shiny look.
Then all you have to do is serve your ham and enjoy Easter dinner with your friends and family.
