There's nothin better than HAM

When you think of Saskatchewan local meats you think of beef, and bison, or deer and other wild game. Many people do not realize that how easy local pigs are to find! There is nothing better then fresh smoked ham. I love the Treens Butcher Shop in Swift Current. 
Ham:
Roast a 10lb leg for 2 to 3 hours at 300 degrees celsius with a bit if water at the bottom.
Trim as needed before serving.
Serve as is with a side of potato salad and fresh corn on the cob!

My favourite glaze (not for the diabetic):
2cups brown sugar
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp mustard of your choice
2 tbsp honey
2 to 4 tbsp flour or corn starch (for a gluten free option)
Drain water from the ham (can save for soup broth). Mix all the glaze ingredients together and pour over the ham. Bake for 20 or 30 more minutes. 
Enjoy!
