Truth is,ham is a pretty lean,healthy meat.it’s the salty cure,layers of skin and fat,and,usually,sticky-sweet glaze that ruin it.But if you boil the ham rather than roast it,you’ll cut much of the salt and fat-and it’ll still be as moist and tasty as ever.Instead of lathering on a sugary honey-baked glaze,we recommend this thin coat of spicy Sriracha-balanced with honey-which will deliver a delicious,more complex punch to the already rich meat.
- 1/4 cup honey
- 3 tbsp Spriracha sauce
- 1 tbsp soy sauce Juice of 1/2 lime
- “City ham (5 to 7 lbs),wet-cured and smoked,as opposed to dry-cured prosciutto-like”country ham”
In small bowl,mix together honey.Sriracha,soy sauce,and lime juice,set aside.Place ham in a stockpot,add water to cover.Bring to a boil,then discard and replace the water and bring to a boil again.Reduce heat,simmer for 15 minutes per pound.Drain and remove the skin and external fat.Heat oven to 375 F .Place ham in a shallow baking dish,brush with the Sriracha glaze,and bake for 30 minutes.Let rest for 20 minutes.

One cup of regular mashed potatoes has 240 calories,9 grams of fat,and 35 grams of carbs.Thankfully,when you’re pureeing the potatoes,you can cut in half with cauliflower and no one will know the difference.Plus,”cauliflower is rich in antioxidants and vitamin C and K,”Hummer says.
It retians the richness of the potato while giving a lighter texture and more complex flaovr. (For bonus flavor: Try it with a few carrots or turnips as well.)
- 1 lb potatoes (russet or Yukon Gold)
scrubbed,peeled it desired,and quartered
- 1/2 head cauliflower,core removed and coarsely chopped
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1/4 cup Greek yogurt Salt and pepper
Place potatoes in a large saucepan:
Cover with water by 3 inches.Bring to a boil.When potatoes are almost tender (a butter knife can almost but not quite go through them easily),add cauliflower,cook another 10 minutes,or until the potatoes and cauliflower crush easily with the back of a spoon.Drain,return to the pot.and mash well with a potato masher.Stir in olive oil and yogurt,add salt and pepper to taste.
