♦ Preheat oven to 325º. Fully wrap Ham in foil and place in a deep baking dish. Stab Sweet Potatoes several times with a knife, and wrap each in foil. Bake ham for 5 mins per pound, with sweet potatoes in
the oven baking at the same time. ♦ In a sauce pan on low, melt 4 T. Butter, and mix in 2 T. any Mustard, along with the Awesome Toss packet. Drain Pineapple, saving 1 cup of syrup, and then Apricots, adding to the 1 cup of syrup if needed. Add this liquid to your sauce pan. ♦ Remove sweet potatoes and ham from oven, and increase oven temp to 400º. Discard all foil, adding any ham drippings to your sauce pan mixture. Gourmet Tip: Boil sauce for about 1-2 minutes, stirring
constantly, to “reduce” it to a glaze. ♦ Place unwrapped ham back into baking dish. Cut Sweet Potatoes into 1” chunks, and place them in a large bowl, along with the Pineapple, Apricots & glaze. Toss to coat. ♦ Remove chunks with slotted spoon & arrange around ham. Slowly pour glaze over the ham to coat. ♦ Bake uncovered 20 minutes more.
WINE: Fruit-forward Riesling (white) or Zinfandel (red).
