Fruity grilled ham - Apricots, apples and ham, oh my!

Easy, quick, delicious, this little gem has it all. I love to mix fruit with ham - they just partner up together so well. As you're keeping an eye on the ham, toss a few ears of corn on the other side of the grill. The meal will be a hit with the family, friends. The best part is that it tastes good but is quick and easy so you won't miss all the outdoor fun☺

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves
  • 2 teaspoons butter or margarine
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 (1/2-inch-thick) ham slices (about 2 1/2 pounds)
  • 4 tart apples (Granny Smith), cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices

Combine first 3 ingredients in a 1-cup glass measuring cup; microwave at HIGH 1 minute or until melted, stirring once.

Grill ham and apples with grill lid down, over medium-hot coals (350° to 400°), turning occasionally and basting with the apricot mixture, 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
