I always make thick crust turkey ham, instead of glazed ham for the last meal of IF periods for Advent. It has been factored by quite an important line from my own family tradition, tweaked by my liking and adapted to my partner’s taste. This batch has been a favorite of mine for a while.
Aromatic, lean, full flavored, tangy, slightly smoky, not greasy or sugary and truly savory. To top it off, it likely crosses between melting away and melting in the mouth. It’s called buttery texture. You can keep your carving knives for another dinner, I mean it. All you need would be a fork for carving and a knife for bread in making a good serve.
I highly recommend going it with Béarnaise sauce. This is the only case I made the sauce by myself! Absolutely goes nicely with the ham. Extra tarragon version of Béarnaise sauce mostly works for my people, you could take a shot!
And then, with fresh and refreshing accompaniments, it will add up to a square meal for the holidays. You could take a shot! Particularly, great for foodies who are not used to cooking at home during holidays. Simple ingredients, less time taking food relatively and low carb & fat friendly dish. With take out food or classic Christmas dishes, you can keep your holidays well balanced in moderation.
Even if this is not a thing to you, you still could get little tips for your festive season dinner ideas. If needed, see attached. The 2nd one will be yours.

  1. There’s a big gap in a tasting code naturally, I think this would be quite a pleasant tea for many people. Even if green tea has given you fairly good experience, the tea isn’t likely something that’s bothering you.
    Compared to the last 5 days, it was soft, tender and delicate relatively. A kind of decent and pleasant tea.
    Possibly, it could be not the most typical blend for the holidays. If you’re looking for tea blended with spicy warming Christmas flavors, this tea could be fairly good.
    Soft, tender and delicate. It made me feel calm and cozy. Clear, clean, comforting and somewhat sweet. Anything but light bodied though. There’s something very stable and beautiful in there. Vanilla flavoring and peppercorns pulled it up to quite a long finish character. The more, the richer, like a consolation. There’s no need to explain it. If I need to choose a tea before bedtime, I will take this.
    Considering common traits of ingredients, this is basically contextual. But standing a chance to hold a good take wholly at the same time. I was on a bit of clarifying kick to dispose it for a leaning by myself all the way.
    Staying with composure, well, it will fall short. If something can make you feel calm, that means that is much more than just a stable thing. I think integrity can hold all aces in there. It was not about moral or ethics, just the way it’s beautiful.
    Let me put it this way. Here is a thing ; The first cup was the best, rather than both the second and the third cup. And, it was not a surprise. You could already get the whole point. If there’s another chance to steep this tea someday, I’ll make the first cup of tea in a time taking way to build the very best shot.

  2. • Tips for the dish
    1. For ham
    ▶️2.5 lb turkey ham
    Lean pork ham will be great too.
    ◻Rinse the ham well. Cold and fresh water will be the best.
    ◻Dry it off. Let the ham come to room temperature.
    ◻Take a pan. Put a teflon sheet for cooking on the pan.
    ▶️1 cup original french mustard
    ▶️2 tsp. original Dijon mustard
    ▶️1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
    ▶️1 tbsp. toasted cardamom, ground
    ▶️1 tsp. toasted fennel, ground
    ▶️1/2 tsp. toasted clove ground
    ▶️1/4 tsp. ground sage
    ▶️1/3 cup water
    Option – 1/4 tbsp. whole cloves
    ◻Preheat an oven to 250F.
    ◻Score the ham.
    In case of pork ham, it might be better to go a classic way so that the excess fat could be removed from the inside ham.
    This was very lean turkey in itself as seen from the above, besides, I like the shape of half slice bringing to my mind the pattern of butterflies. Have your way.
    ◻Bake the ham for about 20 min. Meantime, take a bowl, mix all ingredients. Set aside.
    ◻Take a new pan, put a new teflon sheet for cooking. Set the ham on the 2nd pan.
    Basting is not mine, plus, it might be better to omit that for this.
    ◻Brush the ham with the mixture. 1 tbsp of that should be kept for the last step.
    ◻Bake for about 30 min.
    ◻Brush and bake again.
    ◻Repeat 2 times. Meanwhile, make a classic Béarnaise sauce.
    ◻Remove the ham from the oven. Keep it at room temperature for about 2 hours.
    ▶️1 tbsp. the mixture
    ▶️2 tbsp. rose water
    ▶️1/2 tbsp. a fine type of stevia coated erythritol
    You can choose sugar or molasses to your liking.
    ◻Mingle the rest ingredients.
    ◻Brush the ham with the mixture.
    ◻Bake for about 25 min.
    ◻Draw it out of the oven.
    .
    2. For others
    ▶️3 cups of frozen pomegranate grain
    ▶️Rosemary leaves chopped
    ▶️1 handful of parsley chopped
    ▶️A few drops of oil
    Baked cranberry sauce will be great too.
    ◻Take a bowl. Put all ingredients into the bowl. Bake for about 10 min.
    ▶️Wild arugula
    ▶️Lemon slices
    ▶️1 tbsp. Osmanthus petals liquid allulose
    Petals should be removed from allulose before you drizzle over the ham.
    Allulose really goes well with Osmanthus. With a few drops of maple syrup, it will wrap up a wonderful syrup for holidays ham.
    You could just add your favorite syrup for ham instead of this.
