Spicy Glazed Grilled Easter Ham

Easter is a wonderful time to get the grill fired up and the tradition on most Easter tables is ham. There are so many ready-to-eat, smoked hams on the market these days. We eat ham year round and my kids love it.

As our family works together to eat a whole lot leaner I have been buying small Black Forest hams from the grocer. They are a lot leaner than the traditional bone-in ham.

I like this combination of a sweet and spicy glaze. It packs a bit of a punch and really takes the ham to a whole other level. You can use this glaze on pork as well for even more great grilling results.

Use any pepper jelly you would like but I think the cherry jalapeno jelly works best with the natural sweetness of the ham.

Sweet and spicy, this cherry jalapeno honey ginger glazed ham is sure to be a hit at your Easter table.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dark amber honey
  • 1/2 cup cherry jalapeno jelly
  • 1 teaspoon powdered ginger
  • 2 2-pound boneless Black Forest hams
  • 2 cups apple juice

Instructions

  1. Preheat your grill to medium high heat.
  2. In a small bowl mix the honey, jalapeno jelly and ginger. Microwave for one minute then whisk together.
  3. Score each of the hams 1/2-inch deep to create a checkerboard pattern.
  4. Place the hams cut side down in a disposable aluminum pan.
  5. Pour apple juice in the bottom of the pan and place on the grill for half an hour.
  6. Glaze hams with the honey mixture every 15 minutes for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  7. Remove hams from pan and place directly on grill. Glaze with pan juices. Grill for 2-3 minutes, then remove from grill and rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
  8. Serve with any additional pan juices.

Notes

For a crispier texture, thickly slice ham and grill the individual slices for an additional 2-3 minutes per side.
