A popular Easter tradition in North America, the Easter ham can be prepared in many ways, and is a perfect family dinner.  Our General Manager Erin Cassels, is happy to share her mom’s family recipe which is both simple and delicious! 

What you need: 

  • One large ham 
  • Two cups of brown sugar
  • Two tbsp of dry mustard (can add peppercorns & cloves in a sachet)
  • Two tbsp of dried oregano (or use 4 tbsp of fresh oregano)
  • One cup of water
  • One glass of red wine
  • Step One: Preheat oven to 350F  and score the top of the ham.
  • Step Two: For the sauce, simply heat in a saucepan the brown sugar, mustard, oregano and water.
  • Step Three:  Pour over the ham, and bake in the oven for one hour, basting occasionally.
  • Step Four: Don’t forget that glass of nice red wine, it’s perfect to enjoy and drink while cooking! 

This ham recipe goes perfectly with scalloped potatoes! 
Happy Easter and enjoy!
