Grilled Easter Ham with Citrus Glaze Recipe
Recipe c/o Mom Endeavors
6-7 lb. fully-cooked, bone-in ham, trimmed
1 tbsp. ground coriander
1 tbsp. paprika
1 tsp. cumin
½ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. ground cloves
¼ cup lemon (or other citrus) marmalade
2 tbsp. orange juice
2 tbsp. brown sugar, packed
Preheat your propane home grill to medium-hot (375-425 degrees F). Prepare your grill for indirect cooking: Turn off the center burner. Make sure your drip tray is clean and in place.
Score a diamond pattern into the ham about 1/8-inch deep into any fat. In a small bowl, combine the coriander, paprika, cumin, cinnamon and cloves. Rub the spice mixture over all sides of the ham. Place the ham, flat side down, in the center of the grill. Cover and cook, until the internal temperature of the ham reaches 140 degrees F (about 1 ½ to 2 hours, or 15-18 minutes per pound).
In a small bowl, combine the marmalade, orange juice and sugar. Brush the mixture over the ham. Cover and grill 5 minutes until the glaze is lightly caramelized. Remove the ham from the grill, transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 15-30 minutes.
Grilled Lamb Chops

Serving Size: 6
2 large garlic cloves, crushed
1 tbsp. fresh rosemary leaves
1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Coarse sea salt
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, add garlic, rosemary, thyme, cayenne and salt. Pulse until combined. Pour in olive oil and pulse into a paste. Rub the paste on both sides of the lamb chops and let them marinate for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.
