Betty's Sliced Country Ham with Pear Honey -- Easter

Betty demonstrates how to make Sliced Country Ham with Pear Honey. This is a great combination for your Easter table.

Ingredients

Country ham 1 (boneless, cooked)
Finely chopped pears 4 Cup (64 tbs) , peeled (cored)
Crushed pineapple 8 Ounce , undrained
Sugar 2 Cup (32 tbs) (You may increase or decrease the amount of sugar, as desired.)
Cinnamon stick 1
Light rum 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) (optional you may substitute 2 teaspoons rum flavoring in place of the rum.)

Directions

Making

In a medium-sized pot, place chopped pears, undrained crushed pineapple, sugar, cin-namon, and rum.

Cook over medium to high heat, stirring constantly until mixture comes to a boil.

Reduce heat and cook on low for 2 to 4 hours, stirring occasionally. (I cooked mine 3 hours. The longer you cook the pear honey, the thicker and darker-colored it will be.)

While the pear honey is cooking, prepare ham for serving.

Serving

Since the ham is precooked, just remove the outer plastic and slice, as desired, and place on a nice serving platter.

You may heat the ham, but it is not necessary, because it is deli-cious served at room temperature.

When the pear honey is done, transfer it to a serv-ing dish and serve it alongside the sliced ham.

The pear honey may be served warm or chilled. This is a fantastic entrée for a holiday meal!
