Easter is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with a delicious ham dinner? Whether you're hosting a big family gathering or having a small, intimate meal with loved ones, adding The Traveler's DUST and FUEL to your ham can take your meal to the next level.
To start, you'll want to select a high-quality ham. Look for a bone-in ham with a good amount of fat, as this will help keep the meat moist and juicy during cooking. Once you have your ham, it's time to prepare the seasoning blend.
The Traveler's DUST is a unique blend of spices inspired by travel and adventure, with a smoky and savory flavor profile that's perfect for ham. To create a dry rub, simply mix The Traveler's DUST with a bit of brown sugar and some mustard powder. Rub the mixture all over the ham, making sure to get it into all the nooks and crannies.
But why stop there? The Traveler's FUEL is a garlic-infused oil that can take the flavors of The Traveler's DUST to the next level. Brush some of the oil over the ham before cooking to add an extra layer of flavor and keep the meat moist.
When it comes to cooking the ham, there are a few different methods you can choose from. One popular option is to bake the ham in the oven, covered in foil, until it reaches an internal temperature of 140°F. Then, remove the foil and brush the ham with a glaze made from honey, Dijon mustard, and a bit of apple cider vinegar. Return the ham to the oven, uncovered, and continue to bake until the glaze is caramelized and the ham is fully cooked.
Another option is to smoke the ham, which can add even more depth of flavor. Simply place the ham on a smoker rack and smoke it over a low, indirect heat for several hours, brushing it with The Traveler's FUEL every hour or so.
No matter how you choose to cook your Easter ham, The Traveler's DUST and FUEL can help take it to the next level. So why not add a bit of adventure to your holiday meal this year and give it a try? Happy Easter!
