Every week, we have 20 to 25 of our friends from church over for “community group.” The group is pretty diverse and its a great time to eat a good meal while chatting about life. Lately, our group has been growing and its been too large of a group for our house, so we had to break off into two groups. But, before we did that, we wanted to have one last celebration with everyone together.
It was our turn to provide the main dish and we wanted it to be something special. We chose a Curemaster Reserve Ham and it couldn’t have worked out better. First, it was shipped right to our door so we didn’t even have to go out, which was nice because I was already overwhelmed returning from Florida and getting the house cleaned for a party. After thawing, all we had to do was pop in the oven for a few hours and put the glaze on it toward the end.
The glaze was Jordan’s favorite part. It’s actually an experience in itself just picking the ham that you want. You have several choices of their best small batch smoked hams. We chose a clover honey ham with a brown-sugar siracha glaze. Jordan had such a hard time choosing from all the glazes because they all sounded so good. The slow smoking they do added a lot of extra flavor to each bite and the glaze gave it a little sweetness with just the right amount of heat. It truly was a feast with all the wonderful sides our friends brought. I don’t think Jordan stopped eating the entire time.
We had a few friends that were disappointed when we mentioned we were making a ham. One in particular thought it was going to be a flavorless, dry ham like his mother used to make, but we caught him going back for seconds. By the end, we had a little left over and it made for some great ham and eggs the next morning as well!
We’re going to be out of town for Easter, but this would be just the perfect thing for an Easter celebration. For our next big party, we’ll definitely remember Curemaster Reserve. Their hams are on the more expensive side, but after trying them we know its for good reason. Their quality is 100% guaranteed and it was the best tasting ham I think anyone at our party had ever had.

Here’s a photo of all of our dear friends maxing out our living room. We definitely could have picked a better spot for a photo, but I believe we didn’t want to move our favorite pregnant ladies. 🙂
