a fuzzy bunny.

I gave ham a whirl this year for Easter. We typically always have Honey Baked ham because it is so good and not cooking a meat totally changes Easter day - you get some much time back to relax with family and friends. We celebrated Easter on Saturday this year as Vance worked Sunday. The ham was good - but next year, I think we're back to Honey Baked; it's just nice to have a short cut!
sweet & hot glazed ham
3 tablespoons honey mustard
2 tablespoons brown mustard
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2-3 tablespoons warm water
20 cloves
Mix all ingredients except cloves and set aside. Place ham in baking dish, stick in cloves, cover tightly with tin foil. Follow instructions for baking ham (likely 350 degrees for about 1 and 1/4 to 1 and 1/2 hours). When ham is warmed all the way through, remove from oven and paint on glaze. Turn up the heat to 475 degrees - return uncovered ham to oven for about 10 minutes until glaze just starts to darken in some areas. Remove from oven, recover and allow to rest for 20 minutes.
In keeping with tradition, we started with deviled eggs - I can't get enough of these. Vance made fuzzy bunny cocktails that were delicious.
