Yep, Easter is right around the corner which means that the chilly winter months are behind us. Yippee! Well, I’m in California so it doesn’t get too chilly. But I’m happy for all of you that have been snowed in for months.

That also means that it is time to plan a grand Easter feast! Glazed Ham is my favorite part of this holiday menu.

Glazed Ham

There are five premium ham varieties included in the 2016 Easter holiday line — Vermont Maple, Clover Honey, Campfire Sugar Rubbed, Double Smoked and Brown Sugar. Choose from one of six glazes to combine with any of the exclusive ham varieties, including Pineapple Ginger, Crunchy Brown Sugar, Honey Dijon, Apple Cider Bourbon, Cranberry Chipotle, and Brown Sugar Sriracha.

Glazed Double Smoked Ham

Choose your preferred ham and glaze. I enjoyed this Double Smoked Spiral Ham with Apple Cider Bourbon Glaze. If, like me, you are a fan of smoky flavor . . . this is the ham for you!

It is tender, juicy, flavorful and extra smoky. The glaze is the perfect blend of savory and sweet.

Glazed Ham

This ham paired perfectly with my favorite Easy Pasta Salad Recipe. This cold pasta salad has fresh peas, celery, bacon and cheese all slathered with creaminess. Simple flavors that make one standout side dish!

So order your CUREMASTER RESERVE™ Ham, make this pasta salad and have a wonderful Easter!

    What difference does English peas make and where can you find them?

      I got mine at Trader Joe’s. If you have trouble finding them, and fresh shelled pea will do 🙂
