Home Care in Stuart FL
Whether or not you celebrate Easter, this holiday is a great time to prepare a nice dinner and spend time with family and friends. For the senior who may be requiring some type of home care, spending time with family and friends may very well be even more precious to them because of their age, physical challenges, or health problems that they face on a regular basis.
This year, thanks to the support of an experienced in-home care service provider, the senior in your life may very well be able to host Easter dinner for the family. If she has the means to host and the desire to do so, she will likely need to prepare at least some portion of the food. Other family members may bring certain trimmings and side dishes, but it’s best to have the main course, the main protein, prepared at the home where everyone will be arriving.
This year, consider a tasty, delicious, honey glazed ham. This particular recipe can allow just about anyone, including the senior who relies on home care, to make a ham that tastes just as good as the famous honey-baked hams served at the finest restaurants all around the world.
For this type of ham, they can choose a pre-sliced ham or one that is whole. The choice is up to them, but either will have the entire family and maybe even friends savoring every delicious bite.
What you will need.
In order to make this delicious ham, you will need the following ingredients:
· 1 (5 pound) ham, ready to eat
· ¼ cup of whole cloves
· 2 cups of honey (high quality)
· 2/3 cup of butter
· ¼ cup dark corn syrup
How to prepare this ham.
You want to preheat the oven to 325°F. That would be the equivalent of 165°C.
If you haven’t chosen a pre-sliced ham, score it (slicing the exterior approximately ¼ inch deep). Place whole cloves over the ham and then place the ham in a foil lined pan.
Using a double boiler, heat the corn syrup on the top half of the double boiler along with honey and butter. While the ham is baking, keep the glaze firm.
Brush glaze lightly over the ham and bake it for one hour 15 minutes. Every 10 to 15 minutes, you’ll want to baste the ham with the honey glaze.
When there is about four or five minutes left of baking for the ham, turn the heat up on the glaze to caramelize it. Remove the ham from the oven and let it sit for a few minutes before serving.
