Tart fruits, such as apricots and lemons, pair especially nicely with a rich, salty meat like ham. Teamed up here, they'll add wonderful flair to your meal.

Ingredients

Extra-lean ham (5% fat)

1 pound(s), roast

Dried apricot halves

18 halves

Lemon zest

1 tbsp(s), or zest of 1 lemon, divided

Orange zest

1 tbsp(s), or zest of 1 orange, divided

Honey

¼ cup(s)

Frozen orange juice concentrate

4 tbsp(s), at room temperature

Fresh lemon juice

¼ cup(s)

Brandy

1 fl oz, or bourbon (about 2 tbsp)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. 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.
  3. To make glaze: Stir together honey, juices, brandy and remaining zests. Brush ham with glaze, then pour glaze around ham.
  4. Bake 40 minutes, basting top every 10 minutes. Slice, serve hot and drizzle with extra glaze. Yields about 3 1/2 ounces ham, 3 apricots and 2 1/2 tablespoons sauce per serving.
