“Three out of two people have trouble with fractions.”

Had a tasty bit of grilled ham slices at a friend’s house.  She revealed the secret to the wonderful taste.  It was, she said, the glaze.  I think I promised you this recipe a few blog posts ago.

Not content with baked ham, my friend insisted on cutting thick slices of ham off a packaged ham, scoring them, and cooking them on the grill while slathered in this wonderful glaze.  To clarify – my friend was not slathered with this wonderful glaze.  It was  the ham slices.

The math quotes at the top of the page came to mind because my friend gave me a glaze recipe that would feed a hoard.  I wanted a small amount to eat up when it was simply my husband and me dining together.  I had do math to reduce the recipe.  Internet conversion charts are a real blessing!


ham slices, about 1/3 inch thick

1/4 cup brown sugar

4 t horseradish

1 T lemon juice


Mix the last three ingredients together in a small saucepan and cook over low heat until it simmers for a minute or two.

Ham 09

Cut 1/3-inch thick ham slices from an innocent-looking, packaged, boneless ham.  Score the slices.  Put them on a grill outside or on a griddle in the house.  Some days it’s better to stay in.  Brush the slices on the grill or griddle with the glaze, flip the slices, and do the other side.  Grill until the ham is hot and gets a little color.

You can also serve some of this glaze on the side.  That might mean you’d have to double the recipe.  If you know that 3 teaspoons equal 1 tablespoon your life will be much easier.  There are other things that would make your life easier that have nothing to do with ham or math. However, there’s not enough time right now to go into all of that.  Later.
