Apricot Citrus Stuffed Ham
Extra-lean ham (5% fat)

Dried apricot halves
1 Tbsp, or zest of 1 lemon, divided
1 Tbsp, or zest of 1 orange, divided
Frozen orange juice concentrate

- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Use a paring knife to cut a hole through the centre of the ham. Press 6 apricots and half of each zest into opening. Make crisscross cuts in top of ham, about 1/8-inch deep. Set ham in a baking pan and sprinkle remaining apricots around it.
- To make glaze: Stir together honey, juices, brandy and remaining zests. Brush ham with glaze, then pour glaze around ham.
