My boss got me another Honey Baked Ham Gift Certificate this year.

  1. Dec 27, 2005 #1
    I actually got the ham this year, well only half a ham. Ready for the price tag? $59.42 Took a healthy chunk out of my $60 certificate. The ham has a hard crust around it, I guess it is caramel. It is spiral cut and the thing is DELICIOUS. Damn it's good. Why didn't anyone tell me about this stuff before. I'm gonna go get me another piece.

    Can I have some please? I'm hungry. :frown:

    All I have is a quarter of a loaf of 5 day old bread and some braunschweiger.

    I'll trade. :uhh:

    call it pate'. it sounds more delicious, and it probably has more brandy in it.

    Ah yes, it's all in the description. Some brandy would definitely make it more palatable. :approve:

    Last night I used Honey Baked Ham left overs in some fettucini alfredo. It was pretty good.

    My girlfriend and I got a 9 1/2 lb Honey Baked Ham for about $40 around Thanksgiving time. I thought it was actually quite a deal. We ate it for more than a week.

    Aaaacckk! :yuck:

    When I lived at home, we could buy our own lunch (if we had a job) or we could make braunschweiger sandwiches and take our lunch to school. We got $1.25 to supplement it, either way.

    Suffice it to say that two things came of that:

    1) We all got jobs in high school (I even had a paper route when I was in junior high)

    2) The seven kids in our family wound up living in seven different states and none of them lingered about living at home as an adult.

    I picked up a ~12 pound smoked ham and roasted it myself. Basted with red wine, coke, soy sauce and maple syrup, then crusted it with brown mustard, brown sugar, rum and ginger snaps (modified Alton Brown recipe). All told it cost about $13 for the ham and $2.50 for the gingersnaps, everything else was lying around the kitchen. Plus I've got a nice bone for split pea soup, heck of a deal.

    I wonder why Honey Baked Ham is so expensive where you are? I thought of you a few days ago when I heard they were having a special at the Honey Baked Ham near here...a whole meal...the ham plus side dishes...for $40. They didn't say how many servings though. :uhh:

    I suppose that crispy outside is...honey. :biggrin:

    I'm not fond of sweet ham, so would probably go more for something like DocToxyn's recipe, minus the maple syrup and ginger snaps.
