I bought a nice slice of ham at the grocery store yesterday, intending to fry it up for breakfast today. But then I got to thinking ... it's such a thick slice, it would be good to do something more festive with it than to just plop it on the griddle. So what I did was make a slice of "Christmas Ham."
I garnished it with sliced pineapple, unsweetened tart cherries and whole cloves, drizzled it with agave syrup, then lightly dusted it with ground yellow mustard, cinnamon and ginger. I loosely covered it with foil and baked it in the oven for about a half-hour.
I reserved the remaining cherries, juice and pineapple juice and made a pureed reduction sauce to about one-half volume and thickened it with cornstarch.
I served it with succotash (one of my favorite side dishes) and boiled potatoes lightly creamed with butter.
Dessert was a store-bought sugar-free pumpkin pie that was kinda lousy. It had an odd consistency, more like thick pudding, and a sharp aftertaste. Sugar-free fruit pies (apple, cherry, pineapple, lemon meringue and even southern-style pecan) are much more successful.
