Here is my picture for Adrienne's Mulled Ham, which I made tonight for my kids and I. It looks pretty good, doesn't it?
Now, if you've read Adrienne's recipe for the Mulled Ham, you might have noticed MY ham is missing a few things. Like the pineapple. And the poaching liquid. And the brown sugar. There's a story behind that, of course. I dropped the ham - not once, but twice. The first great drop landed on my fuzzy slipper (ew) and then bounced to the floor. The kids were on the Wii, so I quickly scooped it up, carefully set it back on the plate, picked it up - and dropped the whole thing again. I didn't want to waste a good ham, so I cut off the outside, threw out the pineapple, ditched the poaching liquid, and put it back in a hot oven to fix it.
So here is my version of the Mulled Ham - I call it 'Megan's Beat-up Ham'. Enjoy!! The link to the Mulled Ham recipe can be found here.
Hi everyone. This is a recipe for Mulled Ham (a ham baked in orange juice and mulling spices), by guest author Adrienne Charlton. No picture of it yet, but if I manage to bake a ham in the next couple of days, I will get a picture up!
From Adrienne (who is from Ottawa, Ontario originally, and is currently living in London, England):
Being in Britain, I am surrounded by remembrances of the wartime slogans like "make due and mend" and "keep clam and carry on;" so, when I was unable to find cloves for my Christmas ham I steeled myself and found a solution. The resulting flavour was so complex and seasonally appropriate that it definitely bears repeating. I hope you enjoy the recipe.
No picture yet, as I'm in the process of making these! But these are the best and easiest holiday candies to make, in my opinion, and they taste so, so, so good. AND they're a four ingredient recipe (yes, 4 ingredients!) so that makes them even better. These peppermints have a creamy centre, more like York peppermint patties, and not like an After Eight peppermint.
